The US Army has awarded a multi-year, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract worth $428.29 million to AM General for new M997A3 HMMWV ambulance chassis vehicles, the company announced on 9 September.

The vehicles will be used for domestic disaster relief efforts conducted by the army, army national guard and army reserve.

The company will provide 654 M997A3 HMMWV ambulance chassis vehicles to the national guard under the initial $89.5 million award.

Chris Vanslager, vice president, programs and business development, AM General, said: ‘We are pleased to continue to support the active and future use of the more than 160,000 HMMWV's currently in service as part of US Army, Marine Corps, Reserves and National Guard fleets. This contract is yet another example of the ongoing critical operational need for the HMMWV and how AM General remains the unmatched leader in modernising and maintaining the HMMWV fleet in the US and around the world.

'No company has more light tactical vehicle experience than AM General, and we look forward to working with our valued customers to leverage our five decades of expertise in the design, engineering and manufacturing of this iconic vehicle which will be in the service of US military fleets through 2050.'
