    A self-assessment by the 173rd Airborne Brigade is called ‘a real eye-opener’ to how some critical capabilities to deter Russia have eroded.

          The Army asked and commercial gunmakers answered. There are now 10 submachine guns that have been submitted to fulfill an Army request.

          The aim of the Army’s request for information is not to outfit every soldier with a subgun but to have an option for soldiers who might need this type of weapon for personal protection and specific mission sets.


          2. https://www.armytimes.com/news/your-...-now-official/

          It's official: Soldiers will now receive up to 12 weeks of maternity leave after giving birth. That's more than double the Army's previous policy, which gave female soldiers six weeks of post-pregnancy convalescent leave.

          What remains unchanged are how much time new mothers have before they are deployable again and the Army's rules for new fathers. New mothers are still non-deployable for up to six months.

                  The US Navy’s new anti-ship missile scores a hit at RIMPAC, but there’s a twist

                  https://www.defensenews.com/naval/20...heres-a-twist/

                  The shots dovetails with a concept that the Army and the JGSDF have been developing, known in some circles as “archipelagic defense,” which in essence calls for the use of ground forces to deny Chinese forces free movement through the theater by deploying anti-ship and anti-air missiles throughout the island chains that pepper the Asia-Pacific region.

                          A Defense Department project to optimize the M4A1 carbines used by U.S. Special Operations Command for continuous suppressed use is moving forward.

                          On Tuesday, firearms maker Sig Sauer announced it had received a $48 million DoD contract to create a suppressed upper receiver group, or SURG, based on its MCX system for the service weapon, which, unlike the standard M4, can shoot fully automatic.

                            Here's The Army's Plan For Making Its Apaches More Capable At Sea And Deadlier Overall

                            http://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone...adlier-overall

                            The U.S. Army has released new details about its plans for improving the AH-64E Apache attack helicopter as part of the future Version 6 upgrade package. The updates will include a major boost in the gunship’s maritime capabilities, make it easier for them to team up with a much broader range of unmanned aircraft, and improve the helicopter’s general ability to collect and share information, engage hostile targets, and avoid threats.

                              Gideon Lichtman, an American fighter pilot who as a volunteer during Israel’s War of Independence scored its nascent air force’s first aerial kill of an enemy fighter, will be buried at Arlington National Cemetery.

                              Lichtman, who died in March at 94 and was buried in Hollywood, Florida, will be interred Friday at the cemetery in suburban Washington, DC. He fought for the United States in the Pacific during World War II.

                                This made me giggle. Colt still hasn't moved on past simply converting a 556 to 9mm and two entries are just the same plain old MP5(K) just not manufactured by H&K.
