Allison Transmission, the largest global manufacturer of medium- and heavy-duty fully automatic transmissions for commercial and defence vehicles, has been awarded a contract worth approximately USD 13 million for the second phase of the U.S. Army’s Low-Rate Initial Production contract for the newly named M10 Booker Combat Vehicle, formerly known as Mobile Protected Firepower. Designed to increase the combat power of the Army’s Infantry Brigade Combat Teams, the M10 Booker is one of the U.S. Army’s leading modernization initiatives.

 

“Allison is thrilled to continue working with General Dynamics as we ramp into higher production volumes of the 3040 MX transmission,” said Dana Pittard, Vice President, Defence Programs, Allison Transmission. “One of Allison’s competitive advantages is having a business model that supports low volume programs, particularly in our Off-Highway and Defence end markets. We have the ability to provide our customers with propulsion solutions that deliver high reliability and powerful performance to meet the decades long, demanding lifecycle of armored combat vehicles.”

The U.S. Army is expected to purchase more than 500 MPF vehicles through 2035 representing approximately USD 250 million in revenue for Allison’s Defence end market.

Allison is committed to innovation and offering products that meet both current and future battlefield requirements. The 3040 MX transmission is just one of Allison’s family of cross-drive propulsion solutions that reap the benefits of applied innovation as a result of the company’s experience in commercial vehicle markets and fills the medium weight gap in our cross-drive product portfolio.

The 3040 MX and Allison eGen Force join a portfolio with the venerable X1100 used in the Abrams Main Battle tank and the X200 used in light combat vehicles worldwide.
