$1.2 Billion Contract: First Call-off 28 Vehicles at $230 Million
General Dynamics Land Systems (GDLS) has been awarded a $1.219 billion (€1.04 billion) contract produce, test and deliver Interim Maneuver Short-Range Air Defense (IM-SHORAD) systems to the US Army. The initial order calls for 28 STRYKER IM-SHORAD vehicles for $230 million.
“General Dynamics and our teammates Leonardo DRS and Raytheon are pleased to be able to partner with the Army to bring this powerful capability to US soldiers,” commented Don Kotchman, VP and General Manager of GD Land Systems. “This dedicated SHORAD capability adds a new operational dimension to the STRYKER fleet in all of the Army’s maneuver formations.”
The IM-SHORAD is designed to counter threats from UAS and a multitude of other rotary- and fixed-wing aircraft, providing a common Army platform that is cost-effective, highly mobile, survivable, sustainable and transportable. STRYKER continues to be a highly sought platform beyond the Stryker Brigade Combat Team formations.
The estimated completion date for work under the contract is 30 September 2025.
