MGS on LAV Curtiss-Wright Corporation received a $4 million subcontract for the Mobile Gun System on the M1128 Stryker MGS from General Dynamics Land Systems in Sterling Heights, MI. Curtiss-Wright will produce the Autoloader Controller, Replenisher Controller and Turret System Electronic Unit (TSEU) for the Stryker’s MGS through its Motion Control segment facility in Santa Clarita, CA. Combined, the three systems will provide fully automated loading and ammunition replenishing of the 105mm cannon to achieve sustained high fire rates. The Stryker MGS mirrors related projects by several European countries. It will form the heavy-weapons component of the U.S. Stryker Brigade Combat teams, and has also been selected by the Canadian Armed Forces as the replacement for its Leopard 1 tanks. Deliveries for this contract are expected to be complete by November 2006. See corporate release.
