General Dynamics Flyer 72 wins big Army contract...

via Mil Embedded.com
 General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems has won a $33.8 million contract from the U.S. Army Contracting Command to produce Army Ground Mobility Vehicles (AGMV) and associated kits.

The AGMV -- based on the GMV1.1 vehicle General Dynamics is currently supplying to the U.S. Department of Defense -- is designed to carry an airborne infantry squad and has a payload capability of over 5,000 pounds. It shares approximately 90 percent of its parts with the GMV1.1 and meets the same strategic-lift requirements.

The AGMV, says General Dynamics, can be modified to accept already developed kit configurations such as remote and manned turrets, armor, and arctic kits.

The contract is estimated to be completed by March 2019.
