BAE Readies for Work on Lucrative Mine-Resistant Vehicle Enhancement Contract

BAE Systems picked up a $629 million contract from the U.S. Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) Joint Program Office (JPO) to enhance 1, 700 Caiman MRAP vehicles.

According to the firm, “the upgraded vehicle, called the Caiman Multi-Terrain Vehicle (MTV), integrates a refurbished and improved armored capsule from an existing Caiman with a new high-power automotive power train, chassis and independent suspension. These enhancements will provide greater levels of mobility and survivability necessary for challenging and varied environments and enemy threats.”

BAE Systems is ready to help boost safety for troops on the move.

“The Caiman MTV meets the urgent and enduring needs of our troops for greater mobility and survivability, ” said Dennis Morris, president, BAE Systems Global Tactical Systems. “The Caiman MTV is a very adaptable configuration that can be customized to meet a variety of missions, and we look forward to getting these to the field.”
