BAE systems to refurbish M113A2s for Iraq

M113A2ANNISTON, Ala., Feb. 10, 2012. BAE Systems in partnership with the Anniston Army Depot (ANAD) are refurbishing 440 M113A2 armored personnel carriers for Iraq through a foreign military sales contract worth more than $31 million.

The refurbishment of the M113 vehicles includes replacing old and damaged equipment with updated components and restoring the vehicles to fully mission capable condition. Work on the M113 refurbishment will be completed by April 2012 and is being performed at the company’s Anniston, Alabama facility by the existing workforce.  ANAD is assisting with part of the refurbishment work.

According to the ANAD Business Management Office, “the M113 family of vehicle partnering program provides a great example of how to maintain and strengthen the defense industrial base.  It utilizes the strengths of both the organic and industrial base to provide the best product for both the war fighters and our allies. We look forward to continuing to work on future efforts.”


Under a separate effort, BAE Systems will provide materials to ANAD to refurbish 586 M113A2s also bound for Iraq.  In addition, BAE Systems is also providing field service support and equipment trainers to help with fielding the equipment to the Iraqi Army.

The M113 is part of the largest family of armored tracked vehicles in the world and includes more than 80,000 vehicles worldwide with 40 variants.  It can transport 12 troops plus a driver and is capable of amphibious operation, extended cross-country travel and operation on improved roads and highways.
