BAE Systems will produce additional M109A7s and M992A3s for the US Army.

BAE Systems has obtained a $97.28 million contract modification from the US Army for the production and delivery of M109A7 self-propelled howitzers and M992A3 tracked carrier ammunition vehicles, the DoD announced on 7 January.

Work on the deal from US Army Contracting Command will be performed in York, Pennsylvania, with an estimated completion date of 31 December 2024.

The M109A7s and M992A3s are being procured to provide mobile artillery support to US Army Armored Brigade Combat Teams.

In December 2021, BAE Systems announced that it had delivered 350 M109A7s to the US Army. This is believed to refer to the number of sets delivered, rather than the number of vehicles, suggesting that 175 sets were delivered to the US Army.

Shephard Defence Insight forecasts that the M109A7 will remain in service until FY2050.
