PHOENIX, ARIZONA (BNS): BAE Systems has received a $10.7 million order from the US Army to deliver more than 20,000 Modular Lightweight Load-Carrying Equipment (MOLLE) for soldiers to carry.

The MultiCam order includes core riflemen sets, large rucksack sets, as well as medic, grenadier, pistolman and SAW (Squad Automatic Weapon) Gunner pocket sets.

Designed to blend into virtually any environment, MultiCam is a single camouflage pattern that provides the wearer with needed concealment in one, basic set of gear.

Developed by the US Army Research, Development and Engineering Command (RDECOM), MOLLE is the Army's primary field equipment system.

MOLLE is a highly adaptable platform that enables soldiers to carry equipment and supplies critical to their mission.

Production on this initial delivery order will begin in June 2010, with final deliveries expected to be completed by August 2010, a company statement said.
