STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich. U.S. Army officials modified an existing contract with General Dynamics Land Systems to upgrade 116 Stryker flat-bottom vehicles to the Stryker A1 configuration. The modified contract is worth $258 million.

The Stryker A1 builds on the Double-V Hull (DVH) configuration, providing survivability capabilities against mines and improvised explosive devices. In addition to the DVH survivability, the Stryker A1 features a 450-horsepower engine, 60,000-pound suspension, 910-amp alternator and in-vehicle network.

Work will be performed in Lima, Ohio; Anniston, Alabama; Tallahassee, Florida; and Sterling Heights; with an estimated completion date of March 2020.
