The US Marine Corps Systems Command awarded General Dynamics Land Systems in Canada a $21.2m (£13.6m) delivery-order modification for upgrade kits for RG-31 Mk5E vehicles, previously delivered under the Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicle program.

Delivery of the kits, which will enhance the survivability and operation of the RG-31 vehicles to the latest production configuration, is expected to be completed by October 2011.
