The United Kingdom (UK) Ministry of Defense has awarded NP Aerospace company a $78.8 million (£63 million) contract to maintain the army’s fleet of armoured vehicles.
The contract includes upkeep, update and upgrade of more than 2,200 protected mobility vehicles based in the UK and on operations.
These vehicles offer soldiers, medics and other Army personnel protection from mine and ballistic threats as they navigate rough terrains on the battlefield.
As an example, under this contract, a request could be made by Army personnel in Afghanistan to fit a new loudspeaker to a Foxhound patrol vehicle. NP Aerospace will rapidly design, procure and fit the equipment, as well as providing technical advice throughout the contract period.
Other protected mobility vehicles to benefit from the contract include Mastiff, Wolfhound, Ridgeback, RODET, Jackal, Coyote and Husky vehicles, all of which are currently being used by the British Army for either training or operations in the UK and overseas.
General Atomics has won a $91 million contract to support United Kingdoms (UKs) MQ-9A Contractor Logistics Support Phase IV Program. This contract provides for depot repair, life cycle sustainment, and software maintenance services for UK's MQ-9A fleet
The proposed joint venture (JV) between Rheinmetall and BAE Systems to manufacture military vehicles has been approved by the UK Competition and Markets Authority (CMA). The JV will be known as Rheinmetall BAE Systems Land (RBSL)
