Two U.S. companies are working on the U.S. Army's planned expansion of its self-propelled Paladin howitzer fleet and ammunition supply vehicles. Loc Performance Products Inc. and BAE Systems will design, test and manufacture prototype final drive assemblies for the Army's M109A6/M992A2 Paladin Integrated Management program.

"The contract structure provides maximum value by leveraging Loc's expertise in manufacturing and assembling final drives with BAE's expertise in system engineering design and analysis," said Chad Darr, director of Product Development at Loc. "It offers the program a smooth transition into low-rate initial production by manufacturing the developmental prototypes utilizing production intent processes."
