General Dynamics Unit Awarded $280M to Supply Army Vehicle Protection System Kits

General Dynamics‘ (NYSE: GD) land systems business will provide active protection system kits to the U.S. Army for main battle tanks under a five-year, $280.1 million contract.

The service branch will use the Trophy kits on its M1A2 SEPv2 and M1A2 SEPv3 Abrams family of vehicles, the Department of Defense said Thursday.

Army Contracting Command received two bids for the firm-fixed-price contract.

A team of Leonardo DRS and Israel-based Rafael Advanced Defense Systems completed the delivery of APS units to the Army in January 2021 as part of an urgent requirement for the protection of Abrams ground vehicles against rocket and missile threats.
