General Dynamics to Supply 24 Light Armored Vehicles to the U.S. Marine Corps

LONDON, Ontario, Canada -- General Dynamics Land Systems-Canada has been awarded a $35.5 million contract to produce 24 Light Armored Vehicles (LAV-A2) in various configurations for the United States Marine Corps.

General Dynamics Land Systems, the Canadian company’s parent corporation, is a business unit of General Dynamics.

The LAV-A2 is a mobile, agile and survivable system for conducting offensive and defensive operations in support of the Marine Air-Ground Task Force. The eight-wheeled amphibious vehicle is equipped with enhanced armor protection and an automatic fire-suppression system for crew protection, as well as a robust suspension for mobility.

Vehicle production will be performed at the General Dynamics Land Systems-Canada operations in London, Ontario, and will be completed by April 2012. In total, 207 LAV-A2 vehicles have been ordered by the Marine Corps since 2007. Nearly 800 units of an earlier version of the Light Armored Vehicle entered service with the Marine Corps in the 1980s and continue operational employment today.

The contract was signed through the Canadian Commercial Corporation, a Crown Agency of the Canadian Government.
