As part of the Future Rapid Effect System (FRES), General Dynamics was selected to provide the wheeled utility vehicle. See an article here. The FRES is a long term program to modernize and upgrade the British Army. It is similar in concept to the US Army’s Future Combat System (FCS) in that it is a system-of-systems. The utility vehicle is the first part to be awarded. According to this article the order to GD could be worth up to $12 B, with the next two parts to be awarded also worth this much.
