Summary
House of Representatives This report responds to your January 31, 2000, request concerning the Marine Corps' development of the 155 mm lightweight howitzer. The lightweight howitzer which will be procured for use by both the Marine Corps and the U.S. Army, is intended to provide greater mobility and improved operational characteristics while retaining the same range and accuracy as the current 155 mm howitzer the M-198. The Marine Corps entered into a cost-plus-incentive-fee development contract for the howitzer in March 1997. The contract has a target price of $33.5 million and requires the development and manufacturing of eight howitzers. The program is currently in the engineering and manufacturing development phase,1 and the Department of Defense currently plans to make a decision to go to full-rate production in March 2002
