BAE Gets $120M Modification on USMC Amphibious Combat Vehicle Production Contract

Jeff Brody

BAE Systems will produce 30 amphibious combat vehicles for the U.S. Marine Corps under a three-year, $119.9M contract modification.

The service branch issued the modification to exercise options for three contract line item numbers covering production and fielding services, depot support equipment and support costs, the Department of Defense said Tuesday.

USMC selected the team of BAE and Iveco Defence Systems in 2018 to build ACVs under a contract worth potentially $1.2B.

The Pentagon expects work under the exercised options to finish by January 2022.
