HOUSTON, TEXAS (BNS): BAE Systems has received a $5.5 million contract from US Army to manufacture 24 Patriot support vehicles that will be used in Taiwan.

Under the contract, BAE Systems will manufacture eight Specially Modified Long Wheel Base Chassis, nine cargo vehicles and seven tractors.

The vehicles will be produced in Sealy, Texas and delivered to the Army in December this year, the company said.

These vehicles will be configured on the Long-Term Armor Solution (LTAS) equipped Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV).

The LTAS system, specifically designed for the FMTV by BAE Systems, is comprised of the ready for armor cab, or A-Cab, and appliqu armor, or B-kit.

The A-Cab configuration allows crews to operate the FMTV in on- and off-road, non-tactical and low-threat tactical environments with minimal vehicle weight. The crews can increase their protection during periods of increased threat levels by installing the B-kits.
