BAE Systems Receives Army’s $754M Second Phase Multi-Purpose Vehicle Contract

The U.S. Army has awarded BAE Systems a $754 million contract to supply the second round of the Armored Multi-Purpose Vehicle family of vehicles to replace the existing Vietnam War-era M113 fleet.

The mission-ready AMPV offers the Armored Brigade Combat Team critical survivability, mobility and interoperability.

The contractor initially received the AMPV engineering and manufacturing development contract in 2014 and has been helping the military branch develop the future of the platform, BAE Systems said.

BAE Systems AMPV Program Director Bill Sheehy said the contract is the next phase of an effort to ensure that the ABCT has the needed tools to ensure mission success.

The two organizations have a long history of collaboration. In February, it secured $114 million in foreign military sales contracts to deliver AN/AAR-57 Common Missile Warning Systems, the standard missile warning and hostile fire detection system onboard the service’s rotary-wing and fixed-wing aircraft.

Recently, BAE Systems received a contract to help the military branch ensure the readiness of its fleet of M109A6 and A7 howitzers and their companion CAT vehicles, providing engineering and logistics services to ensure combat readiness.
