Textron Marine & Land Systems has been awarded a $10.9 million contract modification by the U.S. Army Tank-automotive and Armaments Command (TACOM) to build an additional 15 Armored Security Vehicles (ASV). Since the inception of the program in 1999, a total of 2667 ASVs have been contracted, with 1922 vehicles delivered to date. The ASV is a 4X4 wheeled armored vehicle that offers crew protection via the use of multiple layers of armor, defending against small arms fire, artillery projectile fragments, improvised explosives devices, and land mines. Textron Marine & Land Systems has achieved more than 40 consecutive months of on-time delivery to the U.S. Army on the ASV program.
