BAE Systems has received a $180 million Foreign Military Sales (FMS) contract to
manufacture 378 Iraqi Light Armored Vehicles from the U.S. Army Tank-automotive
and Armaments Command.
BAE Systems, as prime contractor, along with subcontractors Force Protection,
Inc., based in Ladson, S.C., and Spartan Chassis, Inc., headquartered in
Charlotte, Mich., will manufacture, test and provide logistics support for
wheeled Iraqi Light Armored Vehicles.
The 4x4 Iraqi Light Armored Vehicles are similar to the proven Cougar armored
vehicles, and include a V-shaped hull designed to deflect the force of
explosions away from passengers.
The total value of the Indefinite-Delivery/Indefinite-Quantity contract could
reach $445.4 million and 1,050 vehicles, if all options are exercised.
Work on the contract will begin immediately with deliveries scheduled to
continue through May 2007.
