BAE Systems Land & Armaments has been awarded a $256.89 million firm-fixed-price modification contract by the US Navy for Amphibious Combat Vehicles (ACV). The contract modification exercise options for the procurement of 27 full rate production ACV personnel variants, 17 FRP ACV command variants, and associated production, fielding, and support costs. This modification is part of the previously awarded contract, M67854-16-C-0006, and brings the total cumulative face value of the contract to approximately $2.33 billion.

The ACV is an 8×8 wheeled armored vehicle that is designed to transport Marines from ship to shore, and once ashore, to continue on with its mission. It replaces the older Amphibious Assault Vehicle (AAV) that has been in service for several decades. The ACV offers improved speed, mobility, and survivability, with advanced communications and command and control systems.

The work on the contract is expected to be completed by July 2025, and Marine Corps Systems Command is the contracting activity. The ACV is a significant part of the Marine Corps’ modernization plan, and the vehicles are set to be fielded to the fleet in the coming years.

The ACV program is a key initiative for BAE Systems, and the company has invested heavily in the development of the vehicle. The award of this contract is a testament to BAE Systems’ expertise in the field of military vehicle design and manufacturing.

In a statement, BAE Systems Land & Armaments said it was proud to continue supporting the US Marine Corps and providing the vehicles needed to enhance the safety and effectiveness of Marines in the field. The company also expressed its commitment to delivering the vehicles on time and within budget.

The contract is a significant win for BAE Systems and reinforces its position as a leading provider of military vehicles to the US armed forces. The company has a long history of working with the US military, and this contract underscores its ability to provide advanced technology solutions to meet the needs of the modern battlefield.
