BAE Secures $140M in Marine Amphibious Combat Vehicle Production Funds

BAE Systems‘ land and armaments business has received a $140.3M contract modification to build 30 amphibious combat vehicles for the U.S. Marine Corps.

The modification exercises options under a previously awarded contract and includes fielding, support and associated production services, the Department of Defense said Thursday.

Eight-five percent of work will occur in York, Pa., and the remaining 15 percent will take place in Aiken, S.C., with an expected completion date of August 2020.
