General Dynamics to refurbish Army Stryker vehicles in deals worth $2.7 billion

April 2, 2019

Armored combat vehicles experts at General Dynamics Land Systems in Sterling Heights, Mich., will repair, retrofit, and support U.S. Army M1126 Stryker combat vehicles to like-new condition under terms of two separate five-year contracts announced in late February collectively worth $2.7 billion. Officials of the Army Contracting Command in Warren, Mich., are asking General Dynamics for retrofit, damage repair, and reset-refurbishment services to support the Stryker family of vehicles; as well as for Stryker wholesale supply, performance-based, logistics services. A reset contract involves the repair and retrofit of battle-worn or damaged products to a like-new condition, which means to refurbish to near zero miles and hours of wear and tear. The Stryker family of eight-wheeled armored fighting vehicles from General Dynamics Land Systems is a derivative of the Canadian LAV III combat vehicle from a General Dynamics-General Motors Defence Canada team, and is based on the Swiss Piranha III 8×8 combat vehicle. Stryker is designed as a deployable fighting vehicle that is more lethal than light vehicles like Humvees, yet is lighter and more maneuverable than heavyweight combat vehicles like the M1 Abrams main battle tank.
