The Army is planning to conduct a 155 mm mobile howitzer shoot-off next year, according to a recent notice.
An industry notice posted today states the project manager for towed artillery systems will solicit, negotiate and award multiple firm-fixed-price contracts for a 155 mm Mobile Howitzer Shoot-Off Evaluation in the second quarter of fiscal year 2021.
"Each vendor will be responsible for transporting a qualifying 155 mm mobile howitzer system and providing support during the evaluation period," the notice states.
The service expects to release an RFP before Oct. 1 and vendors will have 30 days to submit their proposals.
Awards are planned for the first quarter of FY-21.
