STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich., Dec. 10 (UPI) -- The U.S. Army has given General Dynamics Land Systems three contracts to support performance specification changes to Stryker combat vehicles.

The contracts are worth a combined $112.2 million.

"The Stryker is called 'the backbone' of the Army's medium armored brigades, and with these contracts we will continue to strengthen the vehicle so it can protect our troops in theater," said Mike Cannon, senior vice president of General Dynamics Land Systems' Ground Combat Systems. "Stryker delivers strength, speed, lethality and survivability where it counts."

Under one contract, for $92 million, from the U.S. Army TACOM Life Cycle Management Command General Dynamics will provide design and integration engineering services, prototypes, procurement of materials and components and an integrated solution that will deliver improved blast-protection levels to support Stryker brigades.

The second contract, worth $11.7 million, is to acquire the production cut-in for alternators and air conditioning for Stryker Mobile Gun System vehicles.

The third contract, valued at $8.5 million, is for equipment and components in support of total package fielding of Stryker vehicles.

Work under the contract is expected be completed by next September.
