BAE Systems delivers more Bradley A4 vehicles to US Army
BAE Systems confirmed on 3 June that the first batch of Bradley A4 tracked vehicles has been delivered to the US Army.
The US Army awarded a $269 million contract modification for an additional 168 upgraded Bradley A4s in October 2019 to BAE Systems. The vehicles will ensure the combat readiness of Armored Brigade Combat Teams (ABCT).
Scott David, VP of combat vehicle programmes for BAE Systems, said in October 2019: ‘The Bradley is one of the most critical vehicles in the Army’s ABCT today because it allows the Army to transport troops to the fight and provide covering fire to supress enemy vehicles and troops.’
The total value of this modification and the original contract is $578 million.
