General Dynamics‘ ordnance and tactical systems business has delivered a ground vehicle to the U.S. Army within four months of contract award.
The service accepted its first Army-Ground Mobility Vehicle built to transport a nine-member airborne infantry squad and up to 5K pounds of equipment, General Dynamics said Wednesday.
A-GMV 1.1 employs an open architecture designed to accommodate weapon and kit configurations for future requirements.
The vehicle is intended to be transportable onboard military helicopters and to support the Army’s airborne and air assault operations.
“We’re proud to support the Army in accelerating this capability to the field,” said Steve Elgin, vice president and general manager of armament and platform systems at General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems.
