This delivery order is a modification to a previously awarded contract to provide MCTAGS Turret Assemblies, and accessory kits to the USMC over a three-year period.
BAE Systems' MCTAGS enable direct vision, situational awareness and target acquisition for vehicle gunners, commanders, and drivers while under armor protection," said Mark Signorelli, vice president of New Vehicles and Amphibious Systems for BAE Systems.
The total number of MCTAGS turret kits BAE Systems has on contract is 1,335.
BAE Systems MCTAGS units have been fielded on a wide range of vehicles, including the M1 Abrams, Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacement, M88 Family of Vehicles, Logistics Vehicle System and the Joint Explosive Ordnance Disposal Rapid Response Vehicle.
We are pleased that the Marine Corps is confident in the capability the MCTAGS
provides to Marines," said Paul Para, BAE Systems' program manager.
kits will further enhance survivability for Marines by providing a gunner's protection system that enables direct vision, situational awareness and target acquisition while providing enhanced protection from small arms fire and IED fragments," said Paul Para, program manager for BAE Systems.
