Soldiers with the 101st Airborne Division at Fort Campbell, Kentucky, will be the first to receive the Army’s new Sig Sauer-made handguns.
Lt. Col. Steven Power, product manager of Soldier Weapons for Program Executive Office Soldier, told attendees at the National Defense Industrial Association’s armament symposium Wednesday morning that the recently approved congressional budget gave the Army a better idea on scheduling fielding of the handgun.
“The latest budget was our first real knowledge of procurement dollars, which will adjust fielding schedules,” Power said. “However, we will definitely field Fort Campbell this year.”
