The Resurrection Project
In a hard-nosed move that screams both practicality and foresight, the US Army has recently rolled up its sleeves to give a new lease on life to nearly 1,900 Stinger missiles.
These old warhorses, once gathering dust in the arsenal’s back corners, are now back in the game, beefed up to stare down the barrel of today’s threats.
We’re talking a real phoenix-from-the-ashes story here, and it’s saving Uncle Sam a pretty penny to boot.
The Spark of Necessity
This whole shebang kicked off at the McAlester Army Ammunition Plant (MCAAP) back in 2017 with the Stinger Service Life Extension Program.
