The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) recently awarded a five-year, $12 million contract to SIG Sauer for its TANGO6T 1-6×24 Second Focal Plane (SFP) Riflescope. The contract also includes SIG’s ALPHA4 Ultralight Mount. Moreover, the contract states the procurement sends the combo to Special Operations Forces, according to SIG.
“The TANGO6T riflescope line combines ruggedized MIL-SPEC810-G mechanical systems and HDX high definition optical design with advanced electronic technologies,” began Andy York, President, SIG SAUER Electro-Optics. “We are firmly committed to supporting the Department of Defense with this riflescope to provide greater adaptability, increased lethality, and enhanced target acquisition for our Special Operations Forces.”

Firstly, the TANG06T utilizes a second focal plane and an anodized aircraft grade aluminum tube in Flat Dark Earth. Also, the riflescope features an M855A1 Bullet Drop Compensation (BDC) illuminated reticles. Additionally, the reticle delivers holds for CQB to medium engagements and an ultra-bright red Hellfire fiber optic illumination system. The system provides fast daylight target acquisition, a locking illumination dial, throw lever and a laser-marked scope level indicator.
SIG designed the ALPHA4 Ultralight Mount specifically to use with the TANGO6T riflescope. Also, the mount fits standard MIL-STD-1913 rails. Moreover, SIG machines the ALPHA4 from 7075 aluminum and hardocoat anodizes the riflescope. SIG claims the resulting mount is both lightweight and rugged.
“We are honored to receive an additional award for our TANGO6T series of riflescopes for use with our elite forces, and be recognized for our commitment to providing equipment that performs and adapts to the most critical mission requirements,” added Ron Cohen, President and CEO, SIG SAUER, Inc. “We are also very proud that we were successful in our first submission for our ALPHA4 Ultralight Mount, and that it was recognized for quality and durability through this award.”
The five-year, indefinite-delivery/indefinite quantity, firm-fixed-price contract runs through July 2023. SIG plans to build all units in its Wilsonville, Oregon facility.
