Army Awards First Submachine Gun Contract In Over 50-Years

by Tyler Durden
Wed, 04/03/2019 - 23:40

The Army has selected its first subcompact weapon in more than 50-years.

Brügger & Thomet's APC9-K (Advanced Police Carbine) was chosen over Sig Sauer and four other firearm manufactures that submitted their prototypes last year to the Prototype Opportunity Notice (PON), which asked companies for a "highly concealable [Sub Compact Weapon] system capable of engaging threat personnel with a high volume of lethal force while accurately firing at close range with minimal collateral damage."

Image

The APC9-K uses standard 9×19mm and .45 ACP (Automatic Colt Pistol) rounds. It is already in use with law enforcement around the country.

The submachine gun can fire in both semi- and full-automatic modes, has a collapsible stock and Picatinny rail for laser sights.



A Production-Other Transaction Agreement (P-OTA) worth $2,575,811.76 was awarded to Brügger & Thomet for 350 guns and accessories such as spare parts, slings, and manuals. The Army has the option to purchase 1,000 additional weapons under the terms of the contract.

"The P-OTA is awarded based upon successful completion of the prototype project proposed by B&T USA LLC. in response to Sub Compact Weapon (SCW) Prototype Opportunity Notice: W15QKN-18-R-032M, evaluation of testing results, and subsequent updated proposal request letter for Follow-on Production Award. The purpose of this P-OTA is to purchase 350 SCWs, with an option for additional quantities of up to 1,000 SCWs, with slings, manuals, accessories, and spare parts."


Here is a diagram of the APC9-K, and other variant models:

Brügger & Thomet confirmed their selection to Army Times but noted that they weren't at liberty to comment beyond the information published on FedBizOpps.

The Army previously stated that the contract fulfillment period starts five to seven months after the award date (April 1), which means the service could receive their first submachine gun in more than five decades this coming fall.

Civilians have to use older SMGs ... like this one my shooting buddy has ...

Though with new (legal) parts, they can be converted into more useful weapons ...

Japanese F-35 lost in the Pacific somewhere. Pilot missing too. Race is on to find the thing before the Chicoms or Russkis do.

“Missing” because they crashed or “missing” because he flew to Vladivostok for a day trip?

Sounds like the F-35A still has some kinks to work out, but is overall pretty fucking amazing. Lets hope none of our "allies" let the shit slip into enemy hands . . .

Interesting: new physical fitness standards for U.S. military

Quote:
The "New" Army Combat Fitness Test
The Army has revised their fitness test with an eye toward measuring what soldiers actually do in the field (and a big eye to make sure they are fit enough to keep them from getting injured.) Here are the new tests:

3 Rep Max Weight Dead Lift using Trap Bar

Standing Power Throw (Throwing a 10lb Medicine Ball over your head, two handed, backwards for distance)

Hand Release Push Ups (A push up where, at the bottom ROM, you lay on your chest and lift your hands off the ground before starting the next rep.)

50m sprint, drag (90lb sled), lateral (side step), carry (2x40lb) and sprint

Leg Tucks (in a two arm, bent arm hang on a pull-up bar raise your knees until they touch your elbows)

Two Mile Run

https://www.army.mil/acft/#overview


Sounds like they've actually been thinking hard on this stuff for a change!
