The total value of the contract is approximately $2.2 billion.
“The HMMWV continues to be the most sought after light tactical vehicle for military and government customers around the world demonstrating its relevance and reliability while ensuring readiness at an affordable price for the U.S., our allies and coalition partners,” said AM General President and CEO, Andy Hove. “Today’s contract announcement once again highlights the HMMWV as a modern, proven, highly deployable, versatile, rugged and affordable light tactical vehicle.”
Under this contract, AM General will provide a wide range of variants including protected weapons carriers, cargo transporters, communications vehicles and ambulances. The vehicles under this contract builds upon the current globally installed base of over 250,000 HMMWVs in use worldwide in over 60 different countries.
The HMMWV platform performs more mission roles than any other tactical vehicle in the world. The modern HMMWV built by AM General, today includes a high performance, rugged and reliable automotive system. Today’s HMMWV incorporates improvements to the engine (70% increase in torque), transmission (additional overdrive combined with a 2-speed full time all-wheel drive transfer case), cooling system (50% increase), electrical system (400% increase in power generation capacity), suspension and chassis (50% increase in gross vehicle weight capacity) that together provide significant improvements to power, performance and payload, combined with mine blast and ballistic protection levels for users around the world.
AM General continues to design, test and build these improvements into the highly successful HMMWV Ambulance and Army National Guard HMMWV Modernization Public Private Partnership programs, and even more enhancements are available to meet U.S. domestic and international customer needs.
