BAE Systems has received a delivery order worth up to $90.6 million to provide 58 armored fighting vehicles to the U.S. Marines, the company announced Tuesday.
Primary work on the order is slated to begin immediately at BAE Systems facilities in Aiken and York, Pa. The company also has a location in North Charleston.
The vehicles, which are based on BAE’s RG33 line, provide protection against improvised explosive devices, medium machine gun or small arms fire, and mine blasts, the company said.
BAE Systems will work with the Letterkenny Army Depot in Pennsylvania under a public-private partnership to deliver the vehicles. Deliveries are scheduled to begin in September and run through December.
