CINCINNATI, Nov. 12 (UPI) -- Plasan North America has contracted BAE Systems to deliver armor technologies for the U.S. Army's future mine-resistant, ambush-protected all-terrain vehicles.

BAE announced it was selected as a subcontractor by Plasan North America as part of an effort to fill M-ATV orders for Wisconsin-based Oshkosh, which is under contract by the U.S. Army.

Under the deal, BAE will deliver armor components and other armor solutions for M-ATVs to be delivered for operations in Afghanistan.

"Our history of support for the MRAP program ranges from designing and developing three MRAP variants, to supplying critical components on every MRAP platform, including -- with the Plasan contract -- the M-ATV," Tony Russell, president of BAE Systems Security and Survivability business, said in a statement.
