BAE Systems‘ land and armaments business has received a $382.6 million order to provide the U.S. Army with five variants of the Armored Multi-Purpose Vehicle.
The Defense Department said Dec. 23 that the company will deliver general purpose, mortar carrier, mission command, medical evaluation and medical treatment AMPV variants.
The order is part of BAE’s potential $1.2 billion contract for engineering, manufacturing and development services and low-rate initial production of the AMPVs for the Army.
