US Army awards General Dynamics contract for Mobile Protected Firepower

The US Army has awarded a contract worth $335 million to General Dynamics Land Systems to deliver 12 prototype vehicles for the Mobile Protected Firepower program.

The medium-weight, large-calibre MPF combat vehicle will support infantry brigades. The vehicles are required to be highly lethal, survivable and mobile.

The contract has Low Rate Initial Production (LRIP) options for a total of up to $968 million, with work to be performed at Land Systems locations in Sterling Heights, Mich.; Scranton, Pa., and Tallahassee, Fla., and at the Joint Systems Manufacturing Center in Lima, Ohio – the only operational tank plant in the country.

Don Kotchman, Vice President and General Manager of General Dynamics Land Systems U.S. Market, said: “We are excited about this opportunity to provide the US Army a large-calibre, highly mobile combat vehicle to support the infantry brigade combat teams.

“We are especially proud of this new opportunity to serve in the Infantry Brigade Combat Team (IBCT) formation, which we have not done until now.”
