GM Delivers Initial Order of CUCV-II Military Vehicles
to U.S. Air Force Detroit (PROTEXT)
GM will make initial delivery this month to the U.S. Air Force on an order of up to 800 CUCV-II (Commercial Utility Cargo Vehicles) over a five-year period for the U.S. Air Force. This and subsequent deliveries are in accordance with a major contract GM signed with the U.S. Army's Tank-Automotive Armament Command (TACOM) which is handling the transaction on behalf of the U.S. Air Force. The vehicles will be delivered through authorized GM dealers in North America for ultimate destinations in the U.S., Europe and the Far East. The CUCV-IIs are the second generation of Chevrolet full-size pickups and utilities specifically modified for military use as tactical support vehicles by military organizations throughout the world. The CUCV family of vehicles includes cargo/troop carriers, shelter carriers, ambulances and command and control vehicles. CUCVs are now in use and marketed in the U.S., Africa, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East. From 1983-1986, General Motors (NYSE: GM) supplied to the U.S. Department of Defense over 70,000 first generation CUCVs, a majority of which are still in military inventories worldwide. CUCVs are sold and distributed by the Special Vehicles Operation (SVO) of GM's International Product Center (IPC). SVO provides enhanced mobility vehicles tailored to special vehicle applications for commercial and government customers domestically and overseas. These vehicles are supported worldwide through GM's vast network of dealers and strategic partners. The IPC is located at GM's Global Headquarters at the Renaissance Center in Detroit. ots Original Text Service: General Motors Corporation Internet: http://www.newsaktuell.de Contact: Arlene Reindel of GM International Product Center (USA) 313-665-2480 Web site: http://media.gm.com
