BAE Systems will convert 36 M88A1 recovery vehicles of US army to M88A2 standard.

The U.S. Army has awarded BAE Systems a contract modification worth $109.7 million to convert 36 M88A1 recovery vehicles to the M88A2 Heavy Equipment Recovery Combat Utility Lift Evacuation Systems (HERCULES) configuration. The conversions allow the M88A2s to recover the Army's heaviest vehicles, such as tanks, without the assistance of another vehicle.
