Presolicitation notice for a bunch of 7.62 Russian ammo. Probably for the Iraqis.
25 million rounds sounds like a lot, of course, but if you factor in an Iraqi army size of around 200,000 by the end of the year, that’s only 125 rounds per man. Four mags. Is that even enough to zero your weapon and complete qualification?
The troops over there are going through ammo like you wouldn’t believe.
