General Dynamics - Reactive Armour fot Bradley Fighting Vehicle


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
General Dynamics
: 20 August, 2007  (Company News)
General Dynamics Armament and Technical Products, a business unit of General Dynamics, has been awarded a $107.7 million contract option from the U.S. Army TACOM-Picatinny (Picatinny, N.J.) for reactive armor production for the Bradley Fighting Vehicle. This option is part of a July 2006 contract and brings the total value to $237 million.
The reactive armor package, designed specifically for the U.S. Army Bradley Fighting Vehicle, saves lives and prevents crippling damage to combat vehicles in Iraq. Units that have the armor tiles fastened to their exterior, have a clear advantage on the battlefield. They are better able to withstand a direct hit from a variety of anti-armor munitions, including the shoulder-fired Rocket propelled grenades that are prevalent in many of today's regional conflicts.
