$258 Million to Enhance Survivability
A Total of 116 US Army STRYKER vehicles are to be upgraded to the STRYKER A1 configuration by March 2020, under the terms of a contract modification recently awarded to General Dynamics Land Systems.
The STRYKER A1 builds upon the combat-proven Double-V Hull (DVH) configuration, providing greatly improved survivability against mines and IEDs. In addition to the DVH survivability, the STRYKER A1 provides a 450hp engine, 60,000lb suspension, 910A alternator and an in-vehicle network. The STRYKER A1 Infantry Carrier Vehicle is one of the most versatile, most mobile and safest personnel carriers in the entire Army inventory, according to the company.
