The Defense Blog website reports that General Dynamics Land Systems was awarded a contract to support the family of Stryker vehicles.
The U.S. Department of Defense awarded General Dynamics $428 million in contracts related to the armored vehicles, including the field level maintenance, field service representative support, contingency maintenance support, new equipment training and total package fielding. The contract is estimated to be completed on July 31, 2025.
As Israel Defense reported in mid-June, the company was awarded a nearly $2.5 billion contract from the U.S. Army for the production of Stryker Double V-Hull A1 8x8 armored vehicles.
The Stryker fleet is considered the backbone of the Army, with nearly 4,700 vehicles fielded. The U.S. Army continues to modernize its Stryker fleet through the introduction of the 30mm, up-gunned Infantry Carrier Vehicle – Dragoon (ICVD), and the Double-V Hull A1 platform.
