Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy said the service is likely to make large cuts to current programs and fleets after fiscal year 2021 since it has a clearer view of the progress of its modernization programs, Defense News reported Wednesday.

“There were some hard choices, there were some cuts,” McCarthy said of the Army’s FY 21 budget request. He added that those reductions “were refinements” to previous decisions and that “harder choices are coming again” in the couple of years.

He noted that the service will see prototypes and demonstrations transition to development and evaluation phases in the next 18 months as part of modernization efforts.

The Army’s FY 2021 budget request is expected to be released on Feb. 10.
