LADSON, S.C., June 21 (UPI)


U.S. vehicle manufacturer Force Protection Industries Inc. has received U.S. Marines contract modifications for field service representatives.


The representatives are in Afghanistan supporting operation of its mine-resistant vehicles.


Force Protection said the two firm, fixed-price modification awards are worth about $22.48 million.


The first, received June 14, was a six-month renewal for 87 field service representatives and their life support to install spall liner blanket kits, independent suspension kits, modernization safety kits and conduct general maintenance on the Cougar Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicle fleet in Afghanistan.


The second, awarded June 15, was a six-month renewal of 43 field service representatives to support operations at Vehicle Support Facility-Afghanistan.


"The important sustainment, upgrade and modernization work continues for the Cougar vehicles in Afghanistan," Randy Hutcherson, chief operating officer of Force Protection said. "We are pleased to continue to provide this critical service to our Marine Corps customer to support the ongoing operations in Afghanistan."
