On September 30, 2014 MILSPRAY was awarded the contract to provide the Army Contracting Command (ACC) with maintenance and repair of the K5 (E) – Anzio Annie railroad gun static display at the US Army Ordnance Training and Heritage Center in Fort Lee, Virginia.  The K5 (E) – Anzio Annie railroad gun that the MILSPRAY team will restore is captured enemy equipment. It was shipped to Aberdeen, Maryland to the Home of Ordnance and the Army used it for firing tests. In 2010 it was shipped from Maryland to Fort Lee, Virginia.

There were a total of 21 railroad guns built during the 1930s. There are two known survivors – the one at the US Army Ordnance Training and Heritage Center in Fort Lee, Virginia and one at Batterie Todt Museum in France. Brian Feser, CEO & President, of MILSPRAY along with the executive management team are excited to have the honor to work on this truly superb and historic piece of ordnance.
