M88A2 HERCULES(click to view full) BAE Systems in York, PA received a $251.1 million modification to a firm-fixed-price and cost-plus-fixed-fee contract for production of M88A2 Hercules (Heavy Equipment Recovery Combat Utility Lift and Evacuation System) recovery vehicles and system technical support. The HERCULES is well named – it’s strong enough to pull a 70-ton M1 Abrams tank out of a ditch. Work will be performed in York, PA (98%), and Aiken, SC (2%), and is expected to be complete by Nov. 30, 2009. This was a sole source contract initiated on Aug. 10, 2006 by the U.S. Army Tank-Automotive and Armaments Command, Warren, MI (DAAE07-01-C-N030).
