Lockheed Martin UK has won a $1 billion contract from General Dynamics UK to provide turrets for the new SCOUT armored vehicle ordered by Britain’s Royal Armed Forces, the company said in a statement today.
The contract includes design and manufacture of 245 turrets for the new tanks that would sustain 880 jobs at its site in Bedfordshire, England.
The British government in September signed a deal worth $5.76 billion with General Dynamics for the new SCOUT armored fighting vehicles, its biggest single order for such vehicles in over 30 years.
The vehicles will start being delivered in 2017.

Lockheed Martin has developed a turret mounted high definition 15-inch sensor system called INFIRNO that enable users to identify, track and engage multiple targets at long range and conduct intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions. INFIRNO is modular, which allows users to upgrade system components and perform field maintenance without removing the sensor from the vehicle, aircraft or vessel on which it is installed unlike conventional 15-inch sensor systems
