BAE Systems Secures $190M Army Contract Modification for Additional Bradley A4 Vehicles

The U.S. Army has awarded BAE Systems a $190 million contract modification to supply additional Bradley A4 vehicles. Under the modification, the company will deliver over 70 more M2A4 Infantry Fighting Vehicles and M7A4 Fire Support Team Vehicles.

Dan Furber, director of ground vehicle production for BAE Systems, described the Bradley A4s as crucial vehicles for the Armored Brigade Combat Teams, citing the vehicles’ capability to transport troops to the battlefield while providing cover fire to suppress enemy vehicles and troops.

The recent contract, which follows the early order material awards in August and November 2022, supports the upgrading of M2A2 Operation Desert Storm – Situational Awareness variant units to the A4 as part of the Army’s combat vehicle modernization strategy, BAE Systems said.

The Bradley A4 features enhanced mobility and engine horsepower and improved fire suppression and IED jammer components. It also has an upgraded computing system and onboard diagnostics systems designed to provide soldiers with increased situational awareness and fault detection and isolation capabilities.
