VIENNA, Austria -- General Dynamics Santa Barbara Sistemas has been awarded a 64.6 million Euro ($102 million) contract by the Spanish Government to supply RG-31 Mk5E mine protected vehicles for the Army.

The contract calls for the delivery of 100 vehicles -- 85 Armored Personnel Carriers (APCs), 10 Ambulances and 5 Command Post variants -- plus integration of Remote Controlled Weapon Station (RCWS) turrets and ongoing integrated logistic support (ILS). Work under the contract is expected to be completed by 2009. The contract includes an option for a second phase for 80 additional vehicles that will include some manufacturing in Spain.
