STERLING HEIGHTS — The United States Army has awarded General Dynamics Land Systems a $258 million contract modification to upgrade 116 Stryker flat-bottom vehicles to the Stryker A1 configuration.
The Stryker A1 builds upon the combat-proven Double-V Hull configuration, providing greater survivability against mines and improvised explosive devices. In addition to the DVH, the Stryker A1 provides a 450-horsepower engine, 60,000-pound suspension, a 910-amp alternator and an in-vehicle network.
Work will be performed in Sterling Heights and additional GDLS locations in Lima, Ohio, Anniston, Ala., and Tallahassee, Fla., with an estimated completion date of March 2020.
