AM General is close to completing production of 22 combat vehicles for the U.S. Army under a $64.5 million contract awarded last year.
The units are scheduled for delivery to the Army by August for assessment under the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle program, AM General said June 10.
The engineering, manufacturing and development project includes a plan to modify the Blast Resistant Vehicle-Off Road to match configurations for special operations prior to the tests.
Chris Vanslager, an AM General vice president, said the company brings more than 50 years of experience in producing light tactical vehicles to the JLTV program.
AM General’s order includes four-seater and two-seater vehicles for tactical missions and combat support, intending to match different mission requirements of the armed forces.
