Detroit Arsenal

Detroit Arsenal is a United States Army facility located in the city of Warren, Michigan, just north of Detroit. The installation spans across 113 acres in Macomb County. The major Command is the TACOM Life Cycle Management Command (LCMC) which unites all of the organizations that focus on Soldier and vehicle ground systems throughout the entire life cycle. The TACOM LCMC consists of the Acquisition Center, Integrated Logistics Support Center, Program Executive Office Combat Support & Combat Service Support, Program Executive Office Ground Combat Systems and Program Executive Office Soldier.


The U.S. Army TACOM Life Cycle Management Command, in partnership with the Army’s program executive offices, is one of the Army’s largest weapon systems research, development and sustainment organizations. The command’s mission is to develop, acquire, equip and sustain the world’s most capable ground and support systems for joint war fighters through the integration of effective and timely acquisition, logistics and technology. It is at the forefront of the Army’s transformation to a lighter, more lethal and survivable force.


About 20 miles north of Detroit Arsenal is Selfridge Air National Guard Base. Selfridge ANGB is home to many National Guard and reserve units. The base’s exchange, commissary and other services are available to Detroit Arsenal military personnel and their families.
