BAE Systems has won a $37.6 million contract to provide the U.S. Army spare parts and kits for converting 250 vehicles into a new configuration, the company announced Friday.
The company will modify the RG33 Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles into Medium Mine Protected Vehicles.
BAE aims to grow its relationship with the Letterkenny Army Depot through this contract, said Robert Houston, vice president and deputy general manager of weapon systems and support.
Parts included under the contract include a rear ramp to deploy remotely-operated unmanned ground vehicles for route and area clearance missions and a new heating and air conditioning system.
According to the company, the MMPV has a V-shaped hull for protection against symmetrical, asymmetrical and unconventional explosives hazards.
