Textron to Design Army’s Anti-Vehicle Munition System Under $162M Contract

Textron‘s (NYSE: TXT) systems subsidiary has secured a five-year, $162 million contract to design an anti-vehicle weapon system for the first increment of the U.S. Army’s Close Terrain Shaping Obstacle capability. 

The system will include stand-off and top attack features meant to help soldiers conduct terrain-shaping operations, a remote command and control station and mission planning tools, the company said Monday.

“This munition will increase tactical protection for our troops who are facing increasingly sophisticated enemies. For the adversaries and the types of conflicts we see emerging, this will represent a true next-generation anti-vehicle weapon,” said Henry Finneral, senior vice president of weapon systems at Textron.

The Army’s CTSO program is divided into three increments to support terrain-shaping operations modernization.

Contract work also entails qualification testing and hardware delivery services to the government.
