This is what an Arsenal shipment looks like once it leaves Watervliet. Here are the Arsenal's 60mm mortars on a C-17 aircraft being downloaded in Afghanistan. Watervliet Arsenal announced in February 2013 that it received a $5.9 million contract to provide the Afghan National Army with nearly 900 60mm-mortar systems, as part of the U.S. State Department's Foreign Military Sales program. The Arsenal made its first shipment of the 60mm mortar systems in February 2013 and has been shipping about 100 systems a month to Afghanistan.
