The Army will issue a contract modification to AM General to recapitalize approximately 160 humvees for the National Guard.

In an Oct. 29 notice, the Army said the contractor would refurbish two variants of the humvee reliability enhancement vehicle. Each refurbished vehicle will have a new production rolling chassis.

"The new vehicle chassis will include a new engine, engine cooling system, transmission, suspension system, making the Recap vehicle like a new vehicle," the Army said.

"The variants include an updated armor package, air conditioning system, and REV components that improve engine cooling and vehicle suspension for increased vehicle reliability and performance," the notice states. "These integrated upgrades are proprietary to AM General."
