Leverage Textron Systems’ Slidell, Louisiana Vehicle Production Capabilities

Slidell, Louisiana, July 26, 2023 – Textron Systems Corporation, a Textron Inc. (NYSE:TXT) company, announced today that the company will move ahead into Phases 3 and 4 of the U.S. Army’s Optionally Manned Fighting Vehicle (OMFV), now known as XM3Ø combat fighting vehicle program as the designated manufacturer of Team Lynx, led by American Rheinmetall Vehicles. Team Lynx’s OMFV offerings for the Detailed Design and Prototype Build & Test phases leverage Textron Systems’ vehicle production capabilities based in Slidell, Louisiana.

A multidomain industry leader in air, land and sea platforms; weapon systems; electronic systems; propulsion; and test, training and simulation, Textron Systems has more than 50 years of armored vehicle expertise. The company’s Slidell, Louisiana, facility has produced more than 10,000 vehicles for over 15 domestic and international programs. In addition, Textron Systems brings decades of experience in the design, manufacturing, systems integration and support for uncrewed and robotic platforms across air, land and sea.

“Textron Systems’ combat vehicle manufacturing facility, uncrewed and robotic platform experience, and highly skilled talent further strengthen the low-risk Team Lynx offering for the Army’s next great American infantry fighting vehicle,” said Senior Vice President Land Systems and Sea Systems David Phillips. “Already honored to support numerous U.S. Army modernization programs across domains, we stand ready to deliver an OMFV that delivers decisive overmatch.”

The Team Lynx OMFV is designed to achieve the Army’s combat vehicle modernization priorities, but with an open systems architecture that will enable persistent modernization to support infantry formations for years to come. In addition, a modular design and powerful new chassis enable the system to meet rigorous operational demands in a variety of vehicle configurations. Developed and manufactured in America, Textron Systems and American Rheinmetall Vehicles are joined on Team Lynx by Raytheon Technologies, L3Harris Technologies, Allison Transmission and Anduril Industries.
