General Dynamics to upgrade USMC LAVs with improved fuel tanks

14th October 2010 - 18:16 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The US Army TACOM Life Cycle Command recently awarded General Dynamics Land Systems, a subsidiary of General Dynamics, a $8 million contract to provide US Marine Corps Light Armored Vehicles (LAV) with new fuel tanks to enhance Marine safety and survivability.

The contract calls for General Dynamics to outfit 403 Light Armored Vehicles with self-sealing fuel tanks. These tanks are designed to protect crew members and the vehicle from ballistic and shrapnel effects. The tanks will bolster the ability to complete assigned missions and return Marines to base safely.

Work will be performed in Michigan, New York, and London, Ontario, Canada. Kits will be delivered to Marine Corps depots for integration through January 2012.
