BAE Systems PLC (BAESY) on Tuesday said it, along with teammate Iveco Defence Vehicles, received a $67 million modification from the U.S. Marine Corps to develop variants of the Amphibious Combat Vehicle.

The Amphibious Combat Vehicle, or ACV, program aims to find new vehicles to replace the Marine Corp's older Assault Amphibious Vehicle.

Under the terms of the deal, BAE will design and develop a command variant of the vehicle, the ACV-C, and a variant armed with a 30mm medium caliber cannon, the ACV-30.

"The ACV has proven to be a versatile platform capable of numerous configurations to meet current and future mission requirements," said John Swift, director of amphibious programs at BAE Systems. "With this award, BAE Systems will be able to develop a family of vehicles that will deliver the technology and capability the Marines require to accomplish their mission in support of our national security."

BAE said work on the contract will be carried out in Stafford, Virginia; San Jose, California; Sterling Heights, Michigan; Aiken, South Carolina; and York, Pennsylvania.
