The South American nation of Columbia has been involved in fighting drug lords and Communist rebels for several years. The United States Government has provided aid and assistance for several years. This includes advanced military hardware such as UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters. Yesterday it was announced that under Foreign Military Sales (FMS) Columbia will be buying thirty-nine armored vehicles from Textron Marine and Land Systems.

The contract for the vehicles to carry personnel and weapons will be worth about $45 million. These vehicles have been used by the U.S. military in Iraq and Afghanistan and should provide a useful capability to the Colombian military.
