Sig Sauer’s TANGO6 1-6×24 riflescope has been selected by the US Army for its Squad Designated Marksman Rifle (SDMR), the company announced on 11 May.

The optic is the final component to complete the SDMR system that will be deployed into service for the US Army’s designated marksmen.

The riflescope features a flat dark earth anodised aircraft grade aluminium maintube, 762 extended range bullet drop compensation illuminated front focal plane reticle and an ultra-bright red horseshoe dot for fast daylight target acquisition. The optic also features locking illumination dial, power selector ring throw lever and a laser-marked scope level indicator for mount installation.

Andy York, president, Sig Sauer Electro-Optics, said: 'Sig Sauer Electro-Optics fuses superior optical designs, advanced electronic technologies, and ruggedised mechanical systems tested to MIL-STD-810G at our research and development and assembly facility in Oregon, US.

‘We are firmly committed to supporting the US Army with this mission-specific riflescope that bridges the gap between close-quarters battle and mid-range tactical engagements.’
