We are a global leader in designing, manufacturing, integrating and sustaining some of the world's best-performing land combat platforms. Our facilities around the world produce wheeled and tracked combat vehicles, to include the Stryker family of vehicles and the Abrams main battle tank. This platform portfolio is supported by a broad range of high-performance weapons systems and munitions.
The group continued to see good order activity throughout 2017. We:
- Received a $2.4 billion IDIQ-type contrast from the U.S. Army that included an order for $1 billion to upgrade nearly 800 Abrams tanks.
- Experienced increased demand from the U.S. Air Force and Army for various calibers of ammunition and Hydra-70 rockets.
- Received multiple orders across our European portfolio of vehicles, including contracts from Austria, Denmark and Ireland.
- Met key milestones on our major international programs including wheeled armored vehicles for a Middle Eastern customer and AJAX armoured fighting vehicles for the United Kingdom.
