Navistar Defense has been awarded a Foreign Military Sales (FMS) contract, worth around $22 million, by the U.S. Army Contracting Command to supply 4×4 and 6×6 trucks to Iraq.
The statement from the U.S. Department of Defence announcing the award of the contract didn’t specify the model of the trucks being supplied to the Middle Eastern country. The contract work will be performed in Lisle, Illinois, with an estimated completion date of Sept. 27, 2020.
Last year, Navistar was awarded an FMS contract valued at $18.8 million to supply 115 International 7000-MV Medium Tactical Vehicles (MTV) to Iraq.
Since 2004, Navistar Defense has delivered more than 7,000 trucks and buses to Iraq through foreign military sales contracts. This equipment is being used by Iraqi security forces in the Ministry of Interior and Ministry of Defense. Navistar Defense’s dealer in Iraq, Hama, provides parts and service support to Navistar vehicles in Iraq and the region.
