General Dynamics Land Systems (GDLS) has officially delivered the first batch of M10 Booker Combat Vehicles to the U.S. Army, marking a significant milestone in enhancing the Army’s Infantry Brigade Combat Teams (IBCTs). This delivery is part of the Low-Rate Initial Production (LRIP) phase, aimed at supporting government testing and logistics efforts.


The M10 Booker is designed to be a versatile and robust assault vehicle capable of rapidly moving across various terrains. Its primary mission is to engage and destroy enemy combatants, bunkers, machine gun positions, fortifications, and armored combat vehicles. The vehicle employs a four-person crew and is equipped with state-of-the-art technology, including an enhanced thermal viewer and a large-caliber cannon. It also features a lightweight hull and turret, along with a modern diesel engine, transmission, and suspension system.

One of the standout features of the M10 Booker is its design, which allows for future capability upgrades based on evolving operational needs. This forward-thinking approach ensures that the vehicle can adapt to new threats and technological advancements, maintaining its relevance on the modern battlefield.



“The M10 Booker is named after two American heroes who gave their lives in service to their country, and we are honored to design, build, and deliver these vehicles to the Army,” said Gordon Stein, General Dynamics Land Systems vice president and general manager for U.S. operations. “These latest Bookers incorporate improvements and lessons we learned from the Middle Tier Acquisition phase of the program, and we’re confident that Soldiers will find them highly useful in completing their missions.”

The introduction of the M10 Booker into the Army’s arsenal is expected to significantly enhance the capabilities of IBCTs, providing them with a powerful tool to tackle a wide range of combat scenarios. As the Army continues to evolve and modernize its forces, the M10 Booker represents a key component in maintaining the United States’ military superiority.

General Dynamics Land Systems is committed to supporting the U.S. Army through continuous innovation and excellence in military vehicle design and production. The delivery of the M10 Booker vehicles marks the beginning of a new chapter in U.S. Army operations, promising increased effectiveness and resilience in future combat engagements.
