STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich., May 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- General Dynamics Land Systems has been awarded a $163 million contract by the U.S. Army TACOM Life Cycle Management Command to convert 93 flat-bottom Stryker infantry combat vehicles to a newer, more survivable double-V hull (DVH) design. General Dynamics Land Systems is a business unit of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD).

The majority of work will be completed at the Anniston Army Depot in Anniston, Ala., by U.S. government and General Dynamics Land Systems employees. Additional work will be performed at General Dynamics locations in Lima, Ohio, and Scranton, Penn. The estimated delivery date for the Stryker DVH vehicles is March 2016.

The Army partnered with General Dynamics in 2012, launching a Stryker DVH-exchange pilot program validating that Stryker flat-bottom variants can be quickly refurbished and reassembled as a new, more survivable DVH variant, at less cost than producing a new vehicle. General Dynamics and the Anniston Army Depot successfully completed the DVH pilot program in April 2013 and delivered 52 Stryker vehicles on time and under budget.
