The initial order is for a little more than 20 000 Red Dot Scopes to be supplied over a two year period. The order is an amendment to current contracts with the US Army, within which Aimpoint has previously supplied over 100,000 M68 scopes.
This contract with the US air Force is yet again one of the largest single contracts for small arms optical sights in the world. Aimpoint AB, a part of the Swedish GS-Development Group, has previously won similarly large contracts to supply the US Army and French Army, the Swedish Army and continues to supply Special Forces and Law Enforcement world wide.
"Being a supplier to the US Forces is not only a sign that Aimpoint continues to supply the best optical sight for small arms but also something that makes us very proud," says Per Sandberg of Aimpoint AB.
