The US Navy plans to field 60,000 of the Army's new Modular Handgun System to replace its stock of M9 pistols.

"The Navy has contracted with Sig Sauer to procure 60,000 Modular Handgun Systems," Navy spokesman Ben Anderson told Military.com.

The compact XM18 variant of MHS "will replace the Beretta M9 and Sig Sauer M11 sidearms that are currently in the fleet," Anderson said, adding that "money has been allocated for contracting this year, with delivery to the Navy to commence in FY19." http://www.businessinsider.com/navy-buying-60000-of-army-m18-modular-handgun-system-sidearm-2018-3
