One bid was solicited with one received. Work will be performed in Slidell, Louisiana, with an estimated completion date of April 4, 2016. Army Contracting Command, Warren, Michigan, is the contracting activity.

Textron's COMMANDO Select four-wheeled armored personnel carriers offer an enhanced combination of lethality, survivability, mobility and sustainability. Exceptional crew protection is built into all COMMANDO Select vehicles. Greater survivability, however, doesn’t mean sacrificing vehicle mobility - these vehicles deliver greater mobility than similar armored vehicles on the market.

The COMMANDO Select vehicle can be configured to accommodate up to 10 (three crew plus passengers) to enable greater troop carrying capacity. Select vehicles are designed to be easy to operate and maintain, with readily available parts, training and service support.
