Force Protection
: 09 June, 2010  (Application Story)
The Cougar fleet operated by the US Marine Corps is to be modified by Force Protection with the addition of Automated Fire Extinguishing Kits to be completed over the course of the next 9 months
Force Protection has received a modification to contract M67854-07-D-5031 from the United States Marine Corps Systems Command for additional modernization of the US military’s Cougar fleet. The approximate $46.1 million firm, fixed price contract modification provides for the purchase of 2,451 enhanced Automated Fire Extinguishing Systems (AFES), with deliveries scheduled to begin in July 2010 and be completed by February 2011.

Randy Hutcherson, Chief Operating Officer for Force Protection, commented, “We are extremely proud of the proven performance and continued durability of the Cougar fleet, and believe this award for additional modernization is another indicator that our Cougar family of vehicles remains a critical asset for the US and other militaries worldwide. The AFES modernization program complements our ongoing successful efforts for the purchase and installation of Independent Suspension System (ISS) kits on a significant number of Cougars. We will continue to aggressively pursue additional modernization opportunities, and anticipate this segment of the business will remain an important component of our revenue mix in the years to come.”
