Pentagon announces tender to buy Russian-made ammunition

This comes as the US Army Contracting Command is reportedly conducting a market survey to find suppliers of special ammunition and weapon systems for their delivery to unspecified locations outside the continental US, ONA reports citing Sputnik. 

A US Army Contracting Command notice has been posted on the US government’s main contracting website to ask for information from contractors capable of producing and delivering non-NATO special ammunition, the Defence Blog reports.

The notice indicates that the US Army “looks to buy small-calibre special ammunition” for use with Russian-made pistols, assault rifles and machine guns.
