CINCINNATI, OHIO (BNS): Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) awarded a $7 million contract to BAE Systems to produce armour kits for M915A5 military line haul tractors.

The order is for 380 A-kits, which includes a reinforced armoured cab and chassis engineered to provide additional protection to soldiers inside the vehicle, as well as support the added weight of supplemental armour panels.

According to the company news release, the company received an initial $32 million contract for M915A5 A-kits from DTNA in September 2009.

BAE Systems is also engaged in producing B-kits for M915A5 trucks for the US Army. The B-kit consists of field installed, customizable and removable armour panels which interface with the A-kit to provide maximum protection to the crew.

US Army and reserve units often use M915 series line haul tractors to transport needed troop supplies from ocean ports to division support areas within a theatre of operation.
