L3 Technologies has secured a potential two-year, $17.3 million contract to supply 800-horsepower transmission systems to the South Korean army’s infantry fighting and light-recovery vehicles.
The company expects product deliveries to start in the third quarter of 2017 and conclude by 2019, L3 said Thursday.
Michael Strianese, L3 chairman and CEO, said the contract seeks to reflect the expand the company’s international business and reflect its partnership with the government of South Korea.
The firm’s Muskegon, Michigan-based combat propulsion systems division will perform contract work.
The division operates under L3’s electronic systems business segment’s power and propulsion systems sector and manufactures transmissions and engines for allied military forces’ land-based combat vehicles.
L3 has provided transmission kits and related systems to South Korea’s military vehicles since 1999.
