From today's DoD contract announcements:
AM General LLC, South Bend, Indiana, has been awarded a $2,205,926,405 firm-fixed-price contract for the production of up to 11,560 High Mobility Multi-purpose Wheeled Vehicle expanded capacity vehicles, associated optional equipment and contractor-unique spare parts packages for foreign military sales customers worldwide, which will be identified with each order, with the first order being for Afghanistan. One bid was solicited and one bid was received. Work locations and funding will be determined with each order, with an estimated completion date of Feb. 28, 2023. U.S. Army Contracting Command, Warren, Michigan, is the contracting activity (W56HZV-17-D-0071).
This appears to be all destined for non-US customers. I didn't realize this vehicle was still a big seller for FMS clients. Is this because of it's overall capabilities or because of price and support advantages?
