General Dynamics UK has signed an £85m contract to supply a tactical communications and data system to Libya.

The contract forms part of the UK’s initiative to improve economic, educational and defence links with Libya, General Dynamics says.

It will provide the Elite Brigade of Libya’s armed forces with communications and data handling capabilities, technical and training support.

General Dynamics UK has already achieved export success of similar C4I capabilities with the Netherlands and Romania, it says.
