: 18 February, 2010  (Application Story)
250 of General Dynamics RG-31 Mk5E MRAP vehicles to be supplied to the US Marines as well as further vehicles for the Army’s Land Clearance program
US Marine Corps Systems Command (MCSC) has awarded General Dynamics Land Systems-Canada a $227.4 million delivery order to produce 250 RG-31 Mk5E vehicles for its Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicle program. General Dynamics Land Systems, the Canadian company's parent corporation, is a business unit of General Dynamics.

Vehicle production will occur at BAE Systems Land Systems OMC of Benoni, South Africa. Deliveries will be completed by October 2010.

This contract is in addition to the 1,402 RG-31 Mk5 vehicles already supplied by General Dynamics under the MRAP program. Separately, an additional 584 RG-31s were previously ordered by the US Army TACOM Life Cycle Management Command for route-clearance vehicles.

'We appreciate the confidence that the US military has in the RG-31 vehicle, as they conduct their missions in a dangerous and uncertain environment,' said Dr Sridhar Sridharan, senior vice-president of General Dynamics Land Systems-Canada. 'We are pleased to have the opportunity to once again assist in protecting the lives of US soldiers.'

The contract was signed through the Canadian Commercial Corporation, a Crown Agency of the Canadian Government.
