Army Set to Kill Improved Carbine Competition

The U.S. Army plans to cancel its Improved Carbine competition before conducting the final, soldier-evaluation portion of this multi-year effort to replace the M4 carbine.

Program officials are in the process of reprogramming the $49.6 million requested in the proposed fiscal 2014 budget to buy 30,000 improved carbines, according to a source familiar with the effort.

Army weapons officials recently completed Phase II of the competition where testers fired hundreds of thousands of rounds through carbines submitted by gun makers such as Heckler & Koch, FNH-USA, Remington Defense, Adcor Defense Inc. and Colt Defense LLC, the original maker of the M4 carbine.


 
The service’s original plan was to award three contracts to three gun makers for the final phase of the competition, which would involve soldiers firing nearly 800,000 rounds in three separate user evaluations before choosing a winning carbine.

Now the Army is rethinking how to use what amounts to more than $300 million the service budgeted for new carbines through 2018. The decision now rests with Secretary of the Army John McHugh, according to another source with insight into the Army acquisitions community.

Program Executive Office Soldier manages the Improved Carbine competition but officials would not comment on this story because it is a Department of the Army decision, PEO Soldier spokeswoman Debi Dawson said. Army Public Affairs did not respond to requests for comment from Military.com by deadline.

This latest development in the five-year effort comes six weeks after the Pentagon’s Inspector General announced it was auditing the improved-carbine effort. In March 19 testimony before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, the watchdog group said there were concerns that “DoD may not have an established need for this weapon nor developed performance requirements … such as accuracy, reliability, and lethality,” according to testimony.

Army officials and program experts were quick to point out, however, that the IG testimony contains misunderstandings about basic facts of the carbine- improvement effort. The Army established its requirements for the improved carbine effort three years ago.

The requirements document calls for a weapon that’s almost twice as accurate as the current M4. It also emphasized improved reliability, serviceability and a longer-lasting barrel.

McHugh is not taking the audit lightly.

“There has been some input recently out of the Department of Defense as to the Army’s requirement and lack thereof. We are trying to go through those findings to make a determination,” he told lawmakers during an April 25 House Armed Services Committee hearing.

The Army also recently decided to replace the standard M4 with the M4A1, as a result of its M4 Product Improvement Program. The M4A1 is the special operations version of the weapon that’s been in use for just over a decade. It features a heavier barrel and a full-auto trigger. The Army’s decision to dump the current three-round burst trigger will give shooters a more consistent trigger pull and lead to better accuracy, weapons officials maintain.

The Army has budgeted $21.2 million to buy 12,000 M4A1s in the proposed fiscal 2014 budget.

At the completion of the carbine competition, the Army had planned to conduct an analysis of alternatives to see if the winner is a significant improvement over the M4A1 to justify the investment.

Gun makers involved in the competition said they have heard nothing from the Army about Phase III of the competition. Competitors didn’t want to be named in this story but said they would not be surprised if the effort was canceled because they never believed the Army was serious about replacing the M4 family.

McHugh told lawmakers in late April that he hoped to update them by the beginning of the summer, but the Army could make an announcement much sooner, the acquisition source said. PEO Soldier has scheduled a May 23 roundtable for reporters which will include officials from Project Manager Soldier Weapon from Picatinny Arsenal, N.J. and the Maneuver Center of Excellence at Fort Benning, Ga

The biggest yard sale in history:


 U.S. military racing to sell off or scrap $50BILLION of equipment in Afghanistan before it can fall into Taliban hands

    Military equipment from 12 years of war must be out of Afghanistan by the end of 2014
    Billions will be sold online on the auction site Government Liquidation
    Cost to ship 95,000 cargo containers and 35,000 vehicles home will be $6billion
    Equipment cannot be given to the Afghan military and most buyers can't pick it up from Afghanistan, so it must be shipped home
This is the largest retrograde mission in history.'

The transport numbers are staggering. The military will move 95,000 cargo containers out of Afghanistan and 35,000 vehicles.
An estimated $50billion in military hardware - from armored vehicles to dining room sets, combat uniforms to vending machines - must be removed from the
country by the end of 2014.

Most of potential buyers, even allied militaries, aren't in a position to collect the equipment from war-torn Afghanistan.

The Afghan military, already overburdened with the logistics of training and fielding a security force, cannot handle much influx of American equipment and U.S. commanders fear that just dumping the hardware on the Afghan National Army would result in much of it falling into disuse or, worse, into enemy hands.

As a result, millions of tons of equipment must be shipped out of country, either by air freight or overland through Pakistan - both costly propositions.


But, despite the military's claim of efficiency, there are casualties - billions being wasted.

The military own 25,500 Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles across the globe - including 11,000 in Afghanistan.

The vehicles were hastily-developed to cope with the IED threat of fighting an insurgency. In the rush to bring them to the battlefield, the military built too many. A report predicted that the military no longer has use for 12,300 of those vehicles - nearly half of the current inventory.

 Some 2,000 MRAP vehicles are being torn down for scrap in Afghanistan because the military doesn't need them anymore and cannot sell them

Ov-1 Mohawk do US.Army "in Action".  :G-beer2:

The dispute between the Army and the Air Force regarding the area of responsibility for close air support, was won by the Air Force and this caused the "official" removal of "offensive" weapons from the Mohawks in service in 1965, although as it has been already pointed out, many field units continued to carry armament for "self defense" purposes.

There is a report of an armed OV-1 having shot down a North Vietnamese MiG-17 fighter, during a mission over the Ho-Chi-Minh trail by the end of 1966. Two Mohawks from the 131st. SAC based at Phu-Bai and were working on the northern area of the Ho-Chi-Minh trail, and flying a trail formation, when the leading aircraft was fired on by a MiG-17, whose pilot apparently had not seen the trailing aircraft. The OV-1 pilot salvoed his 2.75 in. rockets and downed the fighter. The air-to-air victory remains unconfirmed.

The JOV-1A Mohawks were equipped with a Mk.20 gun sight for the pilot, and the underwing pylons were wired for and capable of carrying armament.

The United States Army is considering cutting down a brigade by 25 percent and replacing those soldiers with robots. General Robert Cone, head of the US Army’s Training and Doctrine Command, spoke at the Army Aviation Symposium last week about how the Army is considering cutting the size of a brigade from 4,000 to 3,000 soldiers.

Continuing, he noted that the Army had devoted more resources to "force protection," keeping the troops safe, at the cost of some firepower. "I think we’ve also lost a lot in lethality," Cone said.

Robots could reduce the force protection burden, giving the Army more killing power per brigade.

Generals are studying proposals as the U.S. army is to slim down from 540,000 to about 490,000 soldiers by the end of next year. Some reports suggest it could dip below 450,000 by the end of the decade.

On December 20-21, 2013, 16 teams were the main attraction at the DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency of United States) Robotics Challenge (DRC) Trials, where they demonstrated their prototype robots’ ability to perform a number of critical real-world disaster-response skills. DARPA constructed eight tasks at the Homestead Speedway in Homestead, Fla., to simulate what a robot might have to do to safely enter and effectively work inside a disaster zone, while its operator would remain out of harm’s way.

“The DRC Trials demonstrated the difficulty of having robots conduct seemingly simple tasks in real-world situations, and the participation of the first responder community provided an important illustration of how technology can save lives,” said Brad Tousley, Director of DARPA’s Tactical Technology Office.
