The U.S. Army Contracting Command – Detroit Arsenal (ACC- DTA) warded Oshkosh Defense $99 Million to upgrade an additional Stryker Brigade Combat Team (SBCT) with the 30 mm Medium Caliber Weapon System (MCWS).

In June 2021, the U.S. Army selected Oshkosh Defense and partners Pratt Miller Defense and Rafael Advanced Defense Systems to integrate the 30 mm MCWS onto the Stryker Double V Hull Infantry Carrier Vehicle (ICVVA1).

The six-year requirements contract is for the production and fielding of the Oshkosh Defense MCWS for up to six Stryker brigades. The first delivery order covered 91 vehicles valued at $130 million.  This latest award calls for an additional 83 vehicles. The Army could build up to six Stryker brigades with the MCWS version, so the potential contract value is roughly $942 million over six years.
