The U.S. Army has cleared the Armored Multi-Purpose Vehicle program’s entry into the full-rate production phase but has yet to award the FRP contract to BAE Systems, Defense News reported Friday.

A spokesperson for the Army’s program executive office ground combat systems said the AMPVs are compliant with the required specifications and that issues detected in the vehicles during low-rate initial production are addressed.

It is key to note that there were no impacts to AMPV fielding activities,” the spokesperson noted.

BAE secured a contract worth $245.6 million in March and a potential $120 million contract on Thursday to procure long-lead items to keep the production line moving for the service’s AMPV program.

Under the Army’s proposed budget for fiscal year 2024, the service planned to buy 91 AMPVs for $555 million, down from its original plan to purchase 131 units for $682.4 million.
