General Dynamics Land Systems has landed a $163 million Army contract to continue conversions on Stryker infantry combat vehicles at Anniston Army Depot.

The contract, awarded by the U.S. Army TACOM Life Cycle Management Command, includes the conversion of 93 flat-bottom Stryker infantry combat vehicles to newer, more survivable double-V hull designs.

The new contract covers the project through March 2016, with the vast majority of work being done in Anniston. Additional work will be performed at General Dynamics locations in Lima, Ohio and Scranton, Penn. About 80 people are employed on the Stryker program at Anniston Army Depot.
