CINCINNATI, Ohio -- BAE Systems has been awarded a $12 million contract by the U.S. Army for Cab Field Kits for M915A3 semi-trucks with previously installed Add-on Armor kits.

When finalized, this contract will be worth approximately $24 million.

With this contract, BAE Systems has orders to deliver approximately 2,000 Cab Field Kits. The Cab Field Kit reinforces the cab structure to better handle the weight of the armor. The M915A3 vehicle is used by the U.S. Army for transport of fuel and supplies in South West Asia.

“These kits will enable the M915A3 trucks to better perform their mission in the demanding terrain experienced by the Army,” said Tony Russell, vice president of Vehicle Armor for BAE Systems. “It will also reduce the operational and maintenance costs for the Army.”

Production for the M915A3 armor kits will be performed in Cincinnati, Ohio and is expected to be completed by January 31, 2009.

BAE Systems employs more than 1,600 people in Cincinnati, Ohio and has almost 1 million square feet of manufacturing and office space. The Cincinnati operations have played a vital role in the Caiman and RG33 Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles program by providing armor systems for both vehicles.

Other products include up-armored vehicles, commercial armored vehicles, integrated armor kits and accessories for a full range of tactical wheeled vehicles, combat vehicles and construction equipment. Cincinnati operations also include a state-of-the art ballistic glass plant.
