BAE awarded $2003.M to modernize USS Boxer

March 27 (UPI) — BAE Systems was awarded a $ 200.3 million contract for work on the USS Boxer during its docking and selected restricted availability.

The deal funds maintenance modernization and repair of the USS Boxer, a Wasp-class amphibious ship launched in 1993 and commissioned in 1995.

The Boxer made headlines earlier this month amid news that a sailor assigned to the vessel had tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

The ship also shot down an Iranian drone in the Strait of Hormuz in July.

Work on the contract is expected to be completed by July.
