BAE Systems has received a $223.5 million contract modification from the US Army TACOM Life Cycle Management Command to remanufacture and upgrade 96 Bradley Combat Systems vehicles.
BAE Systems, in partnership with Red River Army Depot (RRAD), will remanufacture and upgrade 57 Bradley A3 vehicles in infantry and cavalry configurations, 16 Bradley A3 Fire Support Team (BFIST) vehicles and 23 A2 Operation Desert Storm-based M7 BFIST vehicles.
Disassembly will be performed at RRAD and BAE Systems in Fayette County, Pennsylvania. Final assembly, integration and testing will be conducted at the BAE Systems facility in York, Pennsylvania.
“This contract continues our effort to support the effectiveness of the Army’s modular HBCTs (Heavy Brigade Combat Teams),” said Andy Hove, director of Bradley Combat Systems for BAE Systems. “Providing our soldiers with the best combat vehicle system in the world will continue to be our objective.”
BAE Systems will field the Bradley vehicles directly to the units at their home locations and conduct any necessary training and technical support. Vehicle deliveries under this contract will begin in January 2008 and run through mid-2008.
