ANNISTON, Ala.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BAE Systems was awarded a $14.2 million contract to provide field service representatives to support the transition activities of 1,026 refurbished M113A2s and 21 refurbished M88A1s to the Iraqi Army. This work will include maintenance support and training to the crews and units that will operate and maintain this equipment.

“The training and support we are providing will give Iraqi soldiers the knowledge and confidence they need to operate this U.S. equipment.”
