26 February 2020

The US Marine Corps (USMC) has awarded BAE Systems with a USD113.5-million contract to produce an additional 26 amphibious combat vehicles (ACVs). The company told Jane's that it had received the additional low-rate initial production buy for the ACV-personnel carrier variant, which brings the USMC's total ACV buy up to 116.

"The BAE Systems team and the US Marine Corps have been making significant strides to reach full-rate production, including the successful completion of logistics demonstration as a critical enabler for the program to move into initial operational test and evaluation (IOT&E) with trained US Marine maintainers," the company wrote in a separate 25 February announcement.
