BAE Systems received a $43.5 million order from the U.S. Marine Corps for 40 RG33 Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles: 36 Special Operations Command variants, two RG33 MRAP Category II 6x6s, and two Category II Heavy Armored Ground Ambulances. The maximum contract value could total $60 million once contract negotiations are complete. The company will work with Letterkenny Army Depot (LEAD) to deliver the vehicles. Vehicle hull production will occur at BAE Systems’ York, PA, facility while final assembly, integration, and test will occur at the depot in Chambersburg, PA. Deliveries are scheduled to begin in January 2009 and run through May. The BAE Systems/Letterkenny Army Depot Production Enterprise will add about 175 depot jobs, resulting in a net increase of approximately $10 million to the LEAD direct annual payroll.
