general-dynamics-logo2General Dynamics‘ U.K. arm has received a $605 million contract to extend in-service support of Scout special vehicle platforms for the British army through 2024.

The company said Thursday it will assemble, integrate and test 489 Scout SVs at a newly opened facility in Oakdale, South Wales, and perform similar work on another 100 platforms at a facility in Seville, Spain.

The British army is scheduled to receive the 589 armored fighting vehicles between 2017 and 2024.

General Dynamics said it employs as many as 2,650 workers through the British Scout SV program and expects the new AIT center to create up to 250 new jobs.

The company builds the vehicles at an Oakdale-based design and engineering hub.
