    come off the line

    Hello everyone
    I'd like to ask about the meaning of the phrase "come off the line".

    Two sergeants talking to their battle commander.

    "Oh, and you'll be happy to know that the first GD4s are coming off the line. Only enough for two companies, but you and Gallaher are gonna be the company commanders who get 'em. Figure it's the least I can do to say thank you."

    GD4 is a kind of weapon.
    Does the phrase "GD4s are coming off the line" mean that the production of GD4 is completed or does it mean that they has been successfully tested and are ready to use?

    It means ' to come off the production line' - or in other words, to be recently manufactured.
