General Dynamics lands $210M contract for Stryker vehicles
Reston contractor to provide armored fighting vehicles for U.S. sale to North Macedonia
The U.S. State Department has named General Dynamics Corp.’s land systems business as the prime contractor on a potential $210 million foreign military sale of Stryker armored fighting vehicles to North Macedonia through a government-to-government transaction.
On Tuesday, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency delivered the required certification notifying Congress of the possible sale. The request covers 54 Strykers, including the platform’s M1126 infantry carrier, M1129 mortar carrier and M1130 command variants.
The proposed sale also includes the Common Remote Operated Weapons Station, GPS navigation and communications systems, M6 smoke grenade launchers and M2A1 .50-caliber machine guns. General Dynamics Land Systems would manufacture the ground vehicles at a company facility in Ontario, Canada.
General Dynamics Land Systems is a subsidiary of Reston-based General Dynamics. The parent company employs 100,000 people worldwide and reported $39.4 billion in 2019 revenue.
