General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems (GD-OTS) received a ceiling increase modification in the amount of around $48.9 million to an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract for the production of Ground Mobility Vehicle 1.1 (GMV 1.1).
The U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) at Tampa, Florida, is the contracting activity.
This modification (H92222-13-D-0013) raises the contract ceiling to $613.85 million and extends the contract by two years for a total performance period of nine years. This modification was awarded through a sole-source acquisition in accordance with 10 U.S. Code 2304(c)(1) and Federal Acquisition Regulation 6.302.1.
The work will be performed in Anniston, Alabama, and is expected to be completed by August 2022.
USSOCOM GMV 1.1 is based on the Flyer 72 vehicle developed by General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems (GD-OTS), in partnership with Flyer Defense LLC. The new vehicle replaces USSOCOM’s first generation, Humvee-based GMVs units. USSOCOM is the Unified Combatant Command which oversees all Special Operations Component Commands of the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps.
GMV 1.1 is capable of being internally transportable in a CH-47 Chinook helicopter. The vehicle can be employed during a wide range of lethal and non-lethal special operations missions.
Flyer 72’s modular approach provides the warfighter with a rapid mission reconfiguration capability. The Flyer 72 can quickly be configured and reconfigured to perform multiple missions such as light strike assault, rescue and evacuation, command and control, and reconnaissance.
The new Flyer 72 Tactical Utility Vehicle (TUV) provides further platform versatility with modular kits, including Open Cargo Bed, Mortar Weapon and Munitions Carrier, 12-Crew Assault Kit, Tactical CASEVAC/Ambulance Kit, +1 Gunner Main Weapons Stations Kit, Shelter Carrier Kit, and K-9 Carrier Kit.
