BAE completes $64M Paladin order

BAE Systems today said its York County facility finished work on seven Paladin mobile artillery units for the U.S. Army to test before it decides whether to award the company a larger contract.


The Army gave BAE a $64 million contract in 2009 to build five mobile howitzer cannons and two support vehicles as part of the order. The company rolled the first vehicle off the line in January and said it expected to remanufacture 900 Paladins following testing. Those trials could begin in January, according to the company.

BAE is building new bodies for the Paladins, but the turrets will come from the Army’s existing fleet and be outfitted with new interior technology.

London-based defense contractor BAE manufacturers and upgrades various ground vehicles for the military at its facility in West Manchester Township.
