Indeed. Decades of investments. Decades of DoD support. Theoretically CT reached matureness at the end of LSAT program. As you said, there is no meaningful civilian market for CT rounds on the short term, and if their bid is the winner... they could make mountains of money either for manufacturing weapons and ammo and selling intellectual rights to NATO partners. And remember: HK is involved
xmszeon has published a new and interesting infography
Absolutely fantastic find Poli, that really helps further the understanding of how the LSAT/CT ammo works.
Also really mindblowing how much thought went into that design.
I have no merit in it. The talented hombre who is investing tons of time in data and patents is @xmszeon
Latest T&P video has a number of xmszeon's animations.

Good timing, was just about to post that. In addition to the animations, the rail mounted 'motion isolator' talked about last year still seems to be a thing.
That alone could do wonders for improving hit probability.
But that guy didn't say anything serious about chamber sealing

I must be missing something. It isn't the least bit clear to me how a hinged fore grip that lets the front of the rifle move around is supposed to improve hit probability.
Once a position at x,z is declared, then the accelerometers detect motion in that two axis and compensate it until certain point. It's close to a "virtual monopod", like this
but without a stick. Obviously it blocks the weapon inside a xz perimeter, not exactly to a point. But if it works it could be really something in certain circumstances... coupled with the FCS, for instance
The idea with the stabilizer is that it’s a motion isolator.
Normal rifle, your left hand grips the handguard. If your hand/arm trembles, then the muzzle moves as well.
With the stabilizer, you hold that thing. Your arm trembles, the bottom of the device moves, but the motion is isolated, and so the muzzle does not shift off target.
The increase in hit probability is due to making it easier to stay on target when firing from field positions. I imagine the level of improvement is like the difference between firing standing vs firing standing with the rifle hanguard resting on a wall.
