Category: Contracts

M113

BAE Systems has been awarded a contract option worth $30.5 million to upgrade 112 M1068 Standard Integrated Command Post System (SICPS) carriers to the A3 model for the U.S. Army. The additional option is expected to take production through to November 2007.

Under the contract, BAE Systems is producing 334 M1068s as well as 42 M1064A3 mortar carriers and 48 M577A3 command post carriers. All vehicles are members of the M113 family of vehicles.

The BAE Systems' vehicle upgrade facility, located in Anniston, Alabama, has been upgrading the M113 family of vehicles since 1994. The upgrade allows the M113 combat system to match speeds with the Bradley Fighting Vehicle System and the Main Battle Tank and also provides better armour protection for the soldiers.

There are five variants in the M113 family of vehicles included in each of the U.S. Army's heavy brigade combat teams.
