NEW ORLEANS, March 24 (UPI) -- Textron Marine and Land Systems announced a milestone achievement for its U.S. Army vehicle reset program with the completion of its phase II requirements.

U.S. company Textron repaired 12 of the M1117 armored security vehicles as part of phase II of its program with the Army Tank-automotive and Armaments Command.

The reset program is designed to repair the Army's tactical armored vehicles damaged in combat operations and return them to pre-deployment operational readiness. Textron announced it successfully completed phase II of the reset program in 120 days.

"We made significant cost improvements with this phase II reset contract, in spite of the fact that 10 of the 12 vehicles inducted into the program had suffered structural damage," Textron Marine and Land Systems General Manager Tom Walmsley said in a statement.
