BAE Systems has been awarded a $140 million contract modification to build another 30 amphibious combat vehicles for the Marine Corps, the Defense Department announced Dec. 6.
The company won the Marine Corps' ACV competition in June, and was awarded a $198 million contract to deliver an initial 30 vehicles. BAE partnered with Iveco Defense Vehicles to build its ACV prototype, and the team beat out SAIC in the final downselect. The deal could be worth up to $1.2 billion if all options are exercised. The service's acquisition objective is to buy 204 platforms.
