The Army employs various individual weapons to provide light firepower at short ranges. The most common weapons used by the army are the M16 series assault rifle[38] and its compact variant, the M4 carbine,[39] which is slowly replacing selected M16 series rifles in some units and is primarily used by infantry, Ranger, and Special Operations forces.[40] Soldiers whose duties require a more compact weapon, such as combat vehicle crew members, staff officers, and military police, are also issued the M4. The FN SCAR is being issued to a few select army units, and has been cited as a replacement for the M16.[citation needed] The primary sidearm in the U.S. Army is the 9 mm M9 pistol,[41] which is issued to the majority of combat and support units.

Many combat units' arsenals are supplemented with a variety of specialized weapons, including the M249 SAW (squad automatic weapon), to provide suppressive fire at the fire-team level,[42] indirect fire is provided by the M203 grenade launcher in fireteams, the M1014 Joint Service Combat Shotgun or the Mossberg 590 Shotgun for door breaching and close-quarters combat, the M14EBR for long-range marksmen, and the M107 Long Range Sniper Rifle, the M24 Sniper Weapon System, or the M110 Semi-Automatic Sniper Rifle for snipers. Hand grenades, such as the M67 fragmentation grenade and M18 smoke grenade, are also used by combat troops.

Crew served weapons
The Army employs various crew-served weapons to provide heavy firepower at ranges exceeding that of individual weapons.

The M240 is the Army's standard medium machine gun.[43] The .50 Cal. BMG. M2 heavy machine gun is used as an anti-materiel and anti-personnel machine gun. The M2 is also the primary weapon on most Stryker variants and the secondary weapon system on the M1 Abrams. The 40 mm MK 19 grenade machine gun is mainly used by motorized units.[44] It is commonly employed in a complementary role to the M2.

The Army uses three types of mortar for indirect fire support when heavier artillery may not be appropriate or available. The smallest of these is the 60 mm M224, normally assigned at the infantry company level.[45] At the next higher echelon, infantry battalions are typically supported by a section of 81 mm M252 mortars.[46] The largest mortar in the Army's inventory is the 120 mm M120/M121, usually employed by mechanized battalions, Stryker units, and cavalry troops because its size and weight require it to be transported in a tracked carrier or towed behind a truck.[47]

The Army utilizes a variety of direct-fire rockets and missiles to provide infantry with an offensive and defensive anti-armor capability. The SMAW and AT4 are unguided rockets that can destroy armor and fixed defenses (e.g., bunkers) at ranges up to 500 meters. The FIM-92 Stinger is a shoulder-launched, heat seeking anti-aircraft missile. The FGM-148 Javelin and BGM-71 TOW are anti-tank guided missiles. The Javelin can utilize top-attack profiles to avoid heavy frontal armor. The Javelin and TOW are heavier missiles effective past 2,000 meters that give infantry an offensive capability against armor.

Army reports show that at least 90% of military projects are either finished or in final construction stage. Goldman Industries has been awarded $5 million for construction the military equipment.

The missile programs are still under approval of congress.
