Army Orders Further Lightweight Load Carrying Equipment

ATK : 11 May, 2010  (Application Story)
Active soldiers serving overseas for the US army will receive new Modular Lightweight Load-Carrying Equipment from Eagle Industries in the newly specified MultiCam camouflage pattern
Alliant Techsystems subsidiary has received a delivery order from the US Army to produce Modular Lightweight Load-Carrying Equipment (MOLLE II) kits in a new camouflage pattern, that the Army chose specifically for the Afghanistan conflict. Eagle will begin delivery of the MOLLE II equipment kits by the end of August, 2010 to support the US Army's operational needs in Afghanistan.

In response to the US Army's approved plan to field all US Soldiers deployed in Afghanistan with new equipment and uniforms in MultiCam, Eagle Industries immediately began preparing its supply chain and production lines to support the Army's efforts. Eagle Industries has produced MOLLE equipment kits for the Army since 2007 and has produced a wide variety of survivability systems in the MultiCam pattern for military and commercial customers for over four years. The MultiCam pattern was designed by Crye Precision to increase concealment capability across multiple environments.

'MOLLE kits are a core part of our growing security business,' said Ron Johnson, President of ATK's Security and Sporting group. 'The Army's decision to outfit all of its Soldiers in Afghanistan with this new camouflage pattern presents a new opportunity for ATK as we build-out our security portfolio, which now includes the recent acquisition of the Blackhawk Products Group.'

Eagle Industries is a leader in the production of top-quality individual equipment systems for military personnel, law enforcement professionals and first responders. Several highly adaptable, combat proven and durable personal protective systems and components are distributed by Eagle Industries, a wholly owned subsidiary of Alliant Techsystems.
