More than 1,300 jobs across the UK will be secured thanks to a £3.5 billion Ministry of Defence contract to deliver 589 new armoured fighting vehicles that will be the “eyes and ears” of the British Army on the battlefields of the future.

Scout Specialist Vehicles (Scout SV), designed by General Dynamics UK based in Oakdale, South Wales, will give the Army enhanced intelligence, surveillance, protection, target acquisition and reconnaissance capabilities and a highly effective 40mm cannon. The Army’s first fully digitised armoured fighting vehicles, Scout SV will be effective in even the most difficult terrains around the world.
