General Dynamics Land Systems Delivers 1st M10 Booker Combat Vehicles to US Army

General Dynamics Land Systems announces that it has delivered the first M10 Booker Combat Vehicles to the U.S. Army.

The M10 Booker is a new assault vehicle for the Army’s Infantry Brigade Combat Teams (IBCTs). It moves rapidly in a variety of terrain conditions to engage and destroy enemy combatants, bunkers, machine gun positions, fortifications and armored combat vehicles.

The M10 Booker is named after two American heroes who gave their lives in service to their country, and we are honored to design, build and deliver these vehicles to the Army.

These latest Bookers incorporate improvements and lessons we learned from the Middle Tier Acquisition phase of the program, and we’re confident that Soldiers will find them highly useful in completing their missions.

Gordon Stein, General Dynamics Land Systems vice president and general manager for U.S. operations

As part of low-rate initial production (LRIP), multiple Booker vehicles have been delivered to the Army to support government testing and logistics efforts. The Booker employs a four-person crew and features an enhanced thermal viewer, a large-caliber cannon, a lightweight hull and turret, and a modern diesel engine, transmission and suspension system. It has been designed from the start for capability upgrades, based on future operational needs.
