BAE Systems to Manufacture Additional ILAVs

Category: Defence Industry

BAE Systems has received a $7.8 million Foreign Military Sales contract modification to manufacture 20 additional Iraqi Light Armored Vehicles from the U.S. Army Tank-automotive and Armaments Command.

BAE Systems, as prime contractor, along with subcontractors Force Protection, Inc., and Spartan Chassis, Inc., will manufacture, test and provide logistics support for the Iraqi Light Armored Vehicles (ILAVs).

The 4x4 ILAV leverages proven designs and includes a V-shaped hull designed to deflect the force of explosions away from passengers. The contract modification follows an initial order for 378 vehicles issued in May.

The total value of the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract could reach $445.4 million and 1,050 vehicles, if all options are exercised. Work on the contract is ongoing with deliveries scheduled to continue through May 2007. The first ILAV's were delivered to Iraq 90 days after contract award.
