BAE Inks Pact with U.S. Army for M777 Structures

BAE Systems has signed an agreement with the U.S. Army for M777 lightweight howitzer major structures under an Undefinitized Contract Action (UCA), currently limited to US$ 50 million.

BAE Systems will work with its supply chain in the U.K. and the U.S. to produce the major M777 titanium structures, which form the basis of the gun. The first major structures are due to be delivered in 2025.
 
This new contract creates the optimum conditions to restart M777 production in the U.K. It presents an opportunity for new and existing users to join a new M777 production initiative and take advantage of the benefits of a hot production line and economies of scale. The U.S., Canada, and Australia have donated M777s to Ukraine.
 
“The M777 will remain at the forefront of artillery technology well into the future through the use of technical insertions, long-range precision guided munition developments, and flexible mobility options,” said John Borton, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems Weapons Systems U.K., which manages the manufacture and assembly of the M777 lightweight howitzers.
