Textron Marine & Land Systems will build 80 4×4 wheeled armored vehicles for the Iraqi Ministry of Interior for use by the Iraqi Federal Police. The contract of approximately $94 Million has been awarded through the U.S. Foreign Military Sales (FMS) process.

Of the 80 vehicles, Iraq will receive 72 units of the APC (Armored Personnel Carriers) version, while the remaining eight will be the standard M1117 Guardian Armored Security Vehicle (ASV) variant.

All of the vehicles to be delivered will be equipped with the Textron Marine & Land Systems 40/50 manned turret armed with an MK-19 40mm grenade launcher or a 12.7mm heavy machine gun. A total of 184 vehicles (122 ASVs and 62 APCs) have already been delivered to Iraq under previous procurements.  

ASV and APC are in use with the U.S. Army, Colombia and Bulgaria.
