Next summer, soldiers will replace their desert tan combat boots with a darker, coyote-brown version. The photo above shows how the service’s new coyote-brown combat boots will look when worn with the new Operational Camouflage Pattern.

 “To correspond with the introduction of the Operational Camouflage Pattern starting in the summer of 2015, the Army will change the color for the Army Combat Boot to a coyote brown color,” according to Thursday’s U.S. Army news release.

The Defense Department plans to bolster the Iraqi National Security Forces for the fight against ISIS with MRAPs, the heavily-armored vehicles that Defense Secretary-designate Ashton Carter steered through a rapid acquisition process to counter roadside bombs.
The Pentagon is expected to send about 250 of the Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles to Iraq early next year, Rear Adm. John Kirby, the Pentagon press secretary, said at a news briefing.
The Iraqis likely will not have to pay for the vehicles. Other Pentagon officials said that the transfer of the MRAPs would probably be done as “Excess Defense Articles,” which would allow the Defense Department to give them to the Iraqis with State Department approval.

U.S. Army Tests Soviet-Designed Rocket Launcher



U.S. Army infantry platoons may one day be fighting with an Americanized version of the famous, Soviet RPG 7 anti-armor weapon.

Army testers recently evaluated Airtronic USA Inc.’s RPG 7 as part of service’s annual Army Expeditionary Warrior Experiment.

“The durability, simplicity, low cost and effectiveness of the RPG 7 has made it the most widely used man-portable anti-armor weapon in the world, according to the AEWE’s Systems Book of selected technologies chosen for this year’s experiment.

But the Airtronic RPG is quite different than the 1960s-era Soviet weapon. Its tube is made from 4140/4150 ordnance grade barrel steel and it features several sections of rail for attaching optics. It also has an M4-style pistol grip and buttstock. It weighs about 14 pounds unloaded and without optic.

Many soldiers involved with the experiment have faced enemy forces in Iraq and Afghanistan that were armed with RPG weapons, Army officials from the Maneuver Center of Excellence at Fort Benning, Ga., said.

“There was a great deal of interest because there were a number of guys that had been deployed had seen it from the other perspective,” said Harry Lubin, chief of the Experimentation Branch of MCOE’s Maneuver Battle Lab.

The Airtronic RPG is now a program of record in U.S. Special Operations Command. Soldiers, however, did not get to fire any RPG rounds through it because of restrictions imposed by Army Test and Evaluation Command’s safety release, Lubin said.

The problem was that RPG ammunition is made in Europe and could not be safety certified in time for this year’s live-fire portion of AEWE, he said.

“Special-ops command is a little ahead of the Army as far as looking at these,” Lubin said. “They have got the lots of ammo certified … we didn’t not have that luxury. Soldiers could handle it but couldn’t pull the trigger on it.”
This challenge may be solved in the future since Airtronic USA is working on producing the ammunition for it in the United States, Lubin said.

The weapon did perform well when company representatives fired it at targets between 900 and 1,200 meters away, Lubin said.

“The accuracy seemed to be very good,” he said.

It’s too early to tell if the Army will adopt an RPG-style weapon, but the results of the live-fire assessment will be available to Army officials who write future lethality requirements, Lubin said.

This was the first year a live-fire portion was added to AEWE. It gave Benning officials the chance to evaluate weapons that might not be looked at otherwise, Lubin said.

“This provides the opportunity for the Army to look at it,” he said. “This is one of the nice things about AEWE. We are not bound by any programs of record.”

Other munition systems assessed in the live fire also showed a lot of promise, Lubin said.

The Scalable Offensive Hand Grenade offers conventional soldiers a new capability. Unlike the standard fragmentation grenade, this design offers mainly a blast effect that can be doubled or tripled to suit the job.
It has been fielded to USSCOM since 2010.

The base grenade has a non-removable, 3.5 second fuse and a body encasing .25 pounds of high explosive. Two separate modules of the same potency can be quickly connected to provide one, simultaneous explosion.
The blast completely collapsed a one-room, adobe-style structure, Lubin said.

“It really has a devastating effect,” he said.

Army Not Interested in Taking A-10 Warthogs from Air Force

The U.S. Army has no interest in taking over the Air Force's fleet of A-10 attack planes, even if it would save the venerable Cold War-era aircraft from the bone yard.

The service's top civilian, Army Secretary John McHugh, rejected the idea of accepting hand-me-down A-10 Warthogs from the Air Force.

"No chance," he said during a breakfast meeting with reporters on Wednesday in Washington, D.C. "That's not even been a topic of casual conversation."

"With our own aircraft fleet we're taking some pretty dramatic steps to reconfigure and become more affordable, and the A-10 mission is not something we considered. That's an Air Force mission as it should be and I'm sure the Air Force feels the same way," McHugh said.

Meanwhile, on Capitol Hill, Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James defended the service's renewed budget proposal to begin retiring its fleet of almost 300 Warthogs -- even as pilots fly the gunship in the Middle East to attack militants affiliated with the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.


 


Over the past decade-plus of war in Iraq and Afghanistan, James said, "the A-10 has done a magnificent job, but so has the F-16 and the F-15E, and the B-1 bomber has been a contributor and there have been a number of aircraft that have contributed to the totality of close-air support. So to me, close-air support is not a plane, it's a mission."

James made those comments during a Senate Appropriations Defense Subcommittee hearing after Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Missouri, asked her to respond to officials such as Army Chief of Staff Gen. Raymond Odierno who have praised the Warthog's performance in close-air support missions.

The aircraft, known officially as the Thunderbolt II, packs a 30mm, seven-barrel Gatling gun, called the GAU-8 Avenger, which is configured to 3,900 rounds per minute. Pilots and ground troops alike appreciate the low, slow-flying aircraft for its high rate of fire and ability to decimate ground targets.

"We do it with the greatest of reluctance. It's a budgetary matter," James said of the recommendation to retire the plane. "Every aircraft eventually gives way to the next generation."

If lawmakers approve the Air Force's budget request for fiscal 2016, which begins Oct. 1, the service would divest the A-10 over a period of five years and save an estimated $4 billion during that period.

Congress blocked the service's previous budget request to retire the aircraft, but allowed it to move as many 36 of the planes to back-up status. The shift will free up more maintainers to work on the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, the Pentagon's most expensive acquisition program.

Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Welsh, who testified alongside James, has made similar comments in the past. He has said the push to retire the Warthog is being driven by automatic budget cuts known as sequestration.

The across-the-board spending reductions were agreed to by the White House and Congress in 2011 as part of deficit-reduction legislation known as the Budget Control Act. The cuts are due to return in fiscal 2016 with greater effect unless lawmakers agree on an alternative plan.

Separately, Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-New Hampshire, whose husband flew the A-10 and who was part of a group of lawmakers that fought last year to protect funding for the aircraft, reportedly sent a letter to James this week asking for an update into the investigation of Maj. Gen. James Post.

Post, vice commander of Air Combat Command, reportedly warned officers last month: "Anyone who is passing information to Congress about A-10 capabilities is committing treason."

Airbus Helicopters, March 09, 2015 - Orlando, Fla. – The U.S. Army’s recent order for an additional 41 UH-72A Lakota helicopters underscores the continuing value the Army places on the Lakota’s low cost multi-mission capabilities, high performance and reliability.

It also validates the work done by Airbus Helicopters Inc. and Airbus Group Inc. to fulfil commitments made to the Army and the U.S. government.

To date, the Department of Defense has placed orders for 411 Lakotas, 400 for the Army. More than 330 completed aircraft have been delivered by Airbus Helicopters Inc. from its Columbus, Miss. production facility – all of them on time and on budget.

“From the day we signed the contract to produce the UH-72A, our team has strived every day to deliver on our promises to the Army, to the dedicated soldiers who operate these aircraft, to the U.S. government and the taxpayers,” said Marc Paganini, President and CEO of Airbus Helicopters Inc. “We have delivered a superb aircraft that meets the Army’s performance requirements and quality standards, and we have also delivered on our promise to provide outstanding support to keep the Army’s fleet of Lakotas flying and ready to perform the vital missions they are assigned.”
