BAE Systems wins contract to support vehicles for Iraqi Army
BAE Systems was awarded a $14.2 million contract to provide field service representatives to support the transition activities of 1,026 refurbished M113A2s and 21 refurbished M88A1s to the Iraqi Army. This work will include maintenance support and training to the crews and units that will operate and maintain this equipment.
"We have provided this type of support to US allies and partners for decades, and understand the importance of helping to increase capabilities for the Iraqi Army," said Robert Houston, vice president of the Readiness and Sustainment business at BAE Systems. "The training and support we are providing will give Iraqi soldiers the knowledge and confidence they need to operate this US equipment."
These work directives were awarded by US Army TACOM Life Cycle Management Command in support of foreign military sales to Iraq.
BAE Systems is a world class provider of training and field service representatives, with over 1,000 people deployed in several countries, supporting US military forces and its partners and allies.
The contract award builds on earlier work BAE Systems completed in support of foreign military sales to Iraq. Under previous contracts, BAE Systems delivered 618 Iraqi Light Armored Vehicles and eight M88A2 Heavy Recovery Vehicles to the US Government in support of Iraq's Armed Forces. BAE Systems is also providing training and field service representatives to support Iraq's fielding of the M88A2s. The work will be performed in Iraq.
