The US Army will receive 250 RG31 mk5E vehicles from BAE Systems under a $140m contract awarded by General Dynamics Land Systems Canada (GDLS-C).

The new RG31 mk5E version features an enhanced independent suspension system that improves vehicle mobility and ride comfort, improved crew comfort combined with ease of handling, and a v-shaped hull for mine and IED protection.

The new RG31 mk5E uses the same driveline as the RG31 mk5EM, 100 of which were delivered to the army in May 2009.

Manufacturing will be carried out in South Africa and the deliveries to GDLS-C are scheduled to take place in 2010.

The contract is part of the US Army’s mine-resistant ambush-protected vehicle programme.
