Afghanistan to get 1,673 HMMWVs
AM General has been awarded a $356.21 million contract from the US government to manufacture and deliver 1,673 High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWVs) for the Afghanistan National Army and police, the company announced on 1 August.
The contract will see the company deliver 1,259 M1151 A1B1 models and 414 M1152 A1B2 models. Manufacture of the vehicles will run through to July 2017.
Originally developed for and widely deployed by the US military, the HMMWV is a light utility vehicle. Since its introduction into service in the 1990s it has been continuously improved and upgraded into an armoured, expanded-capacity vehicle for payloads up to 3.2t.
Andy Hove, president and CEO, AM General, said: 'This contract announcement reinforces AM General's position as the global leader in light tactical vehicles. Our international partners continue to rely on us to meet the most diverse range of mission capabilities offered by the most adaptable, affordable light tactical vehicles on the planet. We pride ourselves on developing and delivering these solutions to our customers with the speed, efficiency, and reliability only our company can offer.'
