BAE to Continue Army Heavy-Lift Vehicle Configuration Upgrade Under $148M Contract

Jeff Brody

BAE Systems has secured a $148.3 million contract to modernize U.S. Army heavy-lift vehicles with a feature that will allow the military service to recover stranded and damaged combat vehicles.

The company said Wednesday that it will convert 43 M88A1 vehicles to the M88A2 Heavy Equipment Recovery Combat Utility Lift System configuration in an effort to address maneuverability, power and survivability requirements.

M88A2, which is equipped with applique armor panels and updated track skirts, can transport a 70-ton vehicle and its crew to a safety zone.

“We are proud to support the Army’s recovery needs and we will continue to work alongside the Army to provide upgraded solutions as their missions and requirements change,” said Dennis Hancock, director of recovery programs at BAE.

The service branch aims to procure 933 units of the M88A2 vehicle configuration.
