The US Army has awarded a contract estimated $332.9 million to Textron Systems Marine and Land System for procurement of 255 mobile strike force vehicles.
The Mobile Strike Force Vehicle (MSFV) is a new 4x4 armoured vehicle developed for the Afghanistan National Army, under the US Army's MSFV programme since 2011.
“Textron Systems Marine and Land Systems, New Orleans, Louisiana, has been awarded a $332,900,000 firm-fixed-price contract for the procurement of up to 255 mobile strike force vehicles and related fielding hardware and field representative services for system de-processing,” the department of defense announced Wednesday.
Work locations and funding will be determined with each order, with an estimated completion date of Oct. 13, 2024, the statement says.
The US Army began the fielding of MSFVs in Afghanistan in February 2012. The MSFV's design is based on the combat-proven M1117 armoured security vehicle (ASV).
The MSFV is being produced in three variants, including the MSFV armoured personnel carrier (APC) fitted with the standard 40mm/.50 calibre machine-gun turret, an APC with objective gunner protection kit (OGPK) and a raised hull ambulance variant.
