Armour protected Stryker vehicles to be delivered by end of June


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
General Dynamics Land Systems
: 21 December, 2009  (Application Story)
High speed armoured combat vehicles from General Dynamics Land Systems ordered by US Army for delivery to June 2010
The US Army TACOM Lifecycle Management Command has awarded General
Dynamics Land Systems $134 million for work in support of the Stryker family of combat vehicles.

This delivery order funds design and engineering work and enhancements on up to 550 Stryker vehicles that support Operation Enduring Freedom. Work will be performed in Anniston, Ala.; Sterling Heights, Mich.; Lima, Ohio; and London, Ontario, Canada, and is expected to be completed by June 30, 2010.

The Army has seven Stryker Brigade Combat Teams, three of which are deployed in combat zones: two in Iraq and one in Afghanistan. To date, General Dynamics has delivered nearly 3,000 vehicles and trained more than 19,000 soldiers in their use.

Stryker Brigade Combat Teams have operated with historically high mission availability rates in Iraq since October 2003, demonstrating the value of a force that can move rapidly as a cohesive and networked combined-arms combat team. Stryker is a family of eight-wheel drive combat vehicles that can travel at speeds in excess of 60 mph on highways, with a range of 312 miles. Stryker operates with the latest C4ISR equipment and an integrated Armour package to protect soldiers against improvised explosive devices, Rocket propelled grenades, and a variety of infantry weapons.
