BAE Systems’ representative will provide maintenance support and train the crews and units that will operate and maintain this equipment. The work will be performed in Iraq.
“We have provided this type of support to U.S. allies and partners for decades and understand the importance of helping to increase capabilities for the Iraqi Army, ” said Robert Houston, vice president of the readiness and sustainment business at BAE Systems. “The training and support we are providing will give Iraqi soldiers the knowledge and confidence they need to operate this U.S. equipment.”
