SIG Sauer announced the TANGO6T has been selected by the U.S. Department of Defense for the Direct View Optic (DVO) in response to a solicitation to enhance squad performance with a variable powered riflescope. The TANGO6T is a 1-6X variable-magnification riflescope that “enables the soldier to engage both close quarter targets and targets at extended ranges,” says the manufacturer in a press release.
The TANGO6T had already been selected for the Squad Designated Marksman Rifle (SDMR) and the USSOCOM Squad-Variable Powered Scope (S-VPS) and is currently in use with the U.S. Army Squad Designated Marksman and U.S. Military Special Forces.
A three-peat for the SIG Sauer TANGO6T
“This is a three-peat for the TANGO6T as the riflescope continues to prove it will withstand the rigors of US military testing making it the choice for use with our soldiers”, comments Ron Cohen, President and CEO, SIG Sauer, Inc. The riflescope is designed and assembled in the USA at the SIG Sauer Electro-Optics facility in Wilsonville, Oregon.
all4shooters.com took a look at the TANGO6T 1-6x24 DVO riflescope, which is also available for the civilian market, a couple of years ago. It is a first focal plane ruggedized riflescope with a Flat Dark Earth (FDE) anodized aircraft grade aluminum main tube. The riflescope features the DWLR6 reticle capable of providing range estimation and wind holds at extreme distances, the advanced HELLFIRE illumination system for fast target acquisition, a locking illumination dial, Power Selector Ring (PSR) Throw Lever, the ALPHA4 ultralight mount, and a laser-marked scope level indicator for intuitive installation. It will be used on M4A1 carbines.
