THAAD to include support from heavy trucks
The US Missile Defense Agency has issued a $35.56 million contract modification for Lockheed Martin to provide 36 Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Truck (HEMTT) A2 vehicles made by Oshkosh Defense.
The trucks are ‘a lifetime buy to support the THAAD [Terminal High Altitude Area Defense] weapon system’, the DoD announced on 4 August.
HEMTT deliveries will be completed by late June 2024.
The latest modification brings the cumulative maximum value of the THAAD contract to $6.33 billion.
THAAD is a key system to defend US troops, allied forces, population centres and critical infrastructure against short and medium-range ballistic missiles.
