Force Protection announced that they had signed a contract to provide the United Kingdom twenty-three Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles. The contract was signed through the USMC. The vehicles will most likely be used in Afghanistan to support the British forces there.

The continued operations there have demanded extreme efforts to protect against the mine and IED threat. The U.S. and its Allies continue to invest in MRAP vehicles while trying t figure out how best to fit then into their traditional organizations.
