ARLINGTON, Va., Dec. 3 (UPI) -- BAE Systems is to supply spare parts and kits for U.S. Army Medium Mine Protected Vehicles as part of a vehicle reset program.

The contract -- worth $37.6 million -- to BAE Systems was issued by the Letterkenny Army Depot and strengthens the relationship between the depot and the company.

"Over the past several years, we have worked closely with the Letterkenny Army Depot on a variety of programs for our U.S. military," said Robert Houston, vice president and deputy general manager of Weapon Systems and Support at BAE Systems.

"Our partnership on the MMPV program will not only increase the capabilities of the vehicle but also helps to strengthen our partnership with the Letterkenny Army Depot."

The MMPV is a 6x6 armored vehicle with a V-shaped hull for blast protection and is often used in route clearance missions.

Details on the spare parts and kits to be supplied under the contract, which will be produced at the company's facility in Anniston, Ala., as well as their delivery schedule, weren't disclosed.
