Last week, General Dynamics announced that its Land Systems subsidiary has been awarded a contract for 352 Stryker vehicles by the U.S. Army TACOM Lifecycle Management Command. The contract is worth $647 million.

Stryker is a family of eight-wheel drive combat vehicles that can travel at speeds in excess of 60 mph on highways, with a range of 312 miles. It is the Army’s highest-priority production combat vehicle program and the centerpiece of the ongoing Army Transformation. Stryker operates with the latest C4ISR equipment and an integrated armor package protecting soldiers against improvised explosive devices, rocket propelled grenades, and a variety of infantry weapons.

The award continues vehicle production under the Stryker program, which was initially awarded to a General Dynamics team in 2000. To date, General Dynamics has delivered 2, 988 vehicles and trained 18, 438 soldiers in their operation.
