BAE Systems awarded $61M MRAP maintenance deal

BAE Systems has been awarded three contracts worth $61 million to provide service, support and spare parts for RG33 Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles for the US Marine Corps.

The RG33 is one of several mine protected vehicles currently being used by troops deployed overseas that features a v-shaped hull to protect them from roadside bombs and explosive devices.
“BAE Systems continues to support our men and women serving overseas with MRAP vehicles that provide the troops with the best and most reliable protection as they defend us from threats around the world,” says Mark Signorelli, vice president of New Vehicles & Amphibious Systems for BAE Systems.

The company’s field service representatives will provide training and support to Marines using MRAP vehicles under two awards worth $55.5 million, one of which includes $7 million in funding carried over from a previous award.

Under the third award worth $5.5 million, the company will supply spare components for kits that provide enhanced protection for MRAP vehicles against IED threats.
