General Dynamics has won $258.6 million modification contract for the upgrade of Stryker flat bottom vehicles to the double V-hull configuration.

Work is expected to be completed by March 31, 2020, the US department of defense said in a statement Thursday.

The Double V-Hull design gives troops within the vehicle greater protection from mine and improvised explosive device blasts. It includes improved mine resistant blast seating, improved fire suppression features, and a robust suspension system that gives soldiers a smoother ride, reduces shock and vibration and improves force protection.

General Dynamics won $68.5 million for the same modification on Wednesday.
