Category: Defence Industry

RG-31 vehicle

U.S. Marine Corps Systems Command (MCSC) has awarded General Dynamics Land Systems-Canada an Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract and an initial delivery order for the testing, production and support of four Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles.

The MRAP vehicles will provide improved protection for troops from mines, improvised explosive devices and other threats. A possible follow-on production contract could call for the delivery of up to 4100 vehicles.

Under this contract, General Dynamics Land Systems-Canada will provide the program management and logistic support while BAE Systems Ground Systems Division, in conjunction with BAE Systems Land Systems OMC, will manufacture the vehicles in York, Pennsylvania. General Dynamics Land Systems-Canada is providing vehicles for both Category I and Category II requirements of the MRAP program under this contract.

The General Dynamics Land Systems-Canada MRAP vehicle is based on the RG-31 Mk5, the latest version of the highly successful RG-31 vehicle family. The Mk5 delivers a significant increase in power and payload while offering enhanced mine blast resistance, as well as protection against both improvised explosive devices and ballistic threats. In service with forces around the world, the RG-31 is a highly effective multi-role armored vehicle capable of a variety of military applications. U.S. forces have ordered or received 424 RG-31 vehicles, including 265 Mk5s for the U.S. Army and SOCOM.
