: 21 December, 2009  (Application Story)
Mine Roller Kits and Light Armoured Vehicles for use by Iraqi forces will be deliver during 2010
BAE Systems has received a $59 million contract from the US Army Tank-automotive and Armaments Command for the production of 109 second-generation Iraqi Light Armoured Vehicles (ILAV) and 10 Mine Roller Kits. These vehicles are being built for delivery to the Iraqi Ministry of Defence and Interior.

'This is a survivable, mobile and capable light armoured vehicle that will help facilitate the successful transfer of missions from US forces to Iraqi forces and enhance the nationís efforts to strengthen the Iraqi military,' said Mark Signorelli, vice president and general manager of New Vehicles & Amphibious Systems for BAE Systems. 'We are pleased to provide the Iraqi Light Armoured Vehicles designed to meet the needs of the Iraqi military forces.'

BAE Systems, as the prime contractor, along with subcontractors Force Protection based in Ladson, SC, and Spartan Chassis, headquartered in Charlotte, Michigan, will manufacture and produce the ILAVs in three configurations: the basic ILAV troop carrier; a configuration that includes an interrogation arm for route clearance; and an explosive ordnance disposal configuration. The second-generation ILAVs are an improved version from the original Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract received in 2006.

The 4x4 ILAV makes use of proven designs and includes a V-shaped hull designed to deflect the force of explosions away from passengers. ILAVs have been delivered to US forces for training vehicles and are also in use with the Yemen military. BAE Systems has delivered 607 ILAVs to date.

BAE Systems will begin delivering the vehicles in May 2010 with final deliveries expected by October 2010.
