General Dynamics Land Systems (GDLS) has received a $402 million contract to provide systems technical support (STS) for the US Army’s Stryker Brigade Combat Team (SBCT), the company announced on 7 February.

The five-year STS contract, which began in January, will see GDLS perform a variety of work, including log, development and support of government testing in order to maintain the operational readiness of the SBCT.

The army’s Stryker A1 eight-wheeled vehicle features increased power, survivability and mobility and provides extra stowage and seating for nine soldiers and three crew. The US Army continues to modernise its Stryker fleet of vehicles through the introduction of the 30mm, up gunned Infantry Carrier Vehicle – Dragoon and the Double-V Hull A1 platform.

To date, around 4,700 Stryker vehicles have been fielded by the army.
