"We believe the TAPV is the most mobile, survivable and reliable armoured vehicle in the world today," said Textron Systems Vice President of Land Systems Richard Valenti. "We are excited to start these deliveries to the Canadian Army and support the program through operational capability and beyond."

Canada awarded the TAPV contract to Textron in June 2012. The company is to produce 500 armored vehicles, with an option to build another 100.
The deal would be worth up to $600 million for Textron. The firm also has been awarded a $105 million contract for in-service support for a five-year period.

Textron Systems plans to deliver at least 30 vehicles per month to the Canadian Army with all 500 vehicles scheduled to be delivered by December 2017. The fleet will be distributed across seven bases. The Canadian Army expects to declare full operational capability by mid-2020.
