General Dynamics UK has won a £390 million contract from the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) to provide in-service support for the SCOUT Specialist Vehicle (SV) fleet until 2024.
The contract is an extension of the in-service support that General Dynamics UK was contracted to provide for the SCOUT SV fleet until 2020. It also includes the provision of spares and repairs for all 589 platforms.
The extended in-service support contract offers a cost-effective support solution that builds upon the SCOUT SV manufacturing phase, taking advantage of the production pricing of parts.
With this facility investment, General Dynamics UK will undertake the assembly, integration and testing of 489 SCOUT Specialist Vehicle (SV) platforms.
A further 100 platforms will undergo assembly, integration and testing at General Dynamics European Land Systems' facility in Seville, Spain.
The vehicles are on schedule to be delivered to the British Army from 2017 through 2024.
