Force Protection has been awarded a $189.9 million contract by the US Army for the purchase of an additional 167 Buffalo A2 Mine Protected Clearance Vehicles and 102 Buffalo A2 Bar Armor Kits, according to a company press release on 1 November 2011.

The contract is a firm fixed price modification to existing contract W56HZV-08-C-0028 from U.S. Army Contracting Command, and according to Michael Moody, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer for Force Protection, provides ‘important revenue visibility into 2014’ for the company.

‘We remain extremely proud of the service record of the Buffalo and the countless Soldiers' lives saved performing critical route clearance missions. We will continue to work closely with the US Army and other domestic services, as well as militaries worldwide, to ensure troops have the necessary resources to promote their success on the battlefield,’ he added.
