"The Army Modular Handgun System (MHS) is a weapon system produced by Sig Sauer that is to replace the Beretta M9/11 pistol, which has been used by the U.S. Army since 1986. The MHS will fire a 9mm bullet and comes in two sizes, full and compact. The Army is also procuring customized ammunition to increase accuracy and reliability over the life of the handgun. The Army launched its effort to replace the Beretta in 2004, adopted the Capabilities Production Document from the Air Force in 2013, released the Request for Proposal in August 2015, and awarded a contract in January 2017."
