CPBJ reports:  The U.S. Army has given BAE Systems a $165 million contract to build 43 Hercules vehicles at its York County facility, according to the Department of Defense.

The Hercules are armored track vehicles used for hoisting and towing other vehicles and materials in support of the Abrams tank and Paladin mobile artillery fleets, according to the Army. BAE — and previously United Defense — has built the Hercules for the Army since it was introduced in 1997. BAE acquired United Defense in 2005 for more than $4 billion.
