General Dynamics Land Systems has received a $258 million contract modification from the US Army to upgrade 116 Stryker flat-bottom vehicles to the Stryker A1 configuration, the company announced on 26 June.

The Stryker A1 builds upon the double-V hull configuration to provide better survivability against mines and improvised explosive devices. The versatile and mobile infantry carrier offers a 450hp engine, 60,000lbs suspension, 910-amp alternator and in-vehicle network.

Work under the contract will be complete by March 2020.
