The Army partnered with General Dynamics in 2012, launching a Stryker DVH-exchange pilot program validating that Stryker flat-bottom variants can be quickly refurbished and reassembled as a new, more survivable DVH variant, at less cost than producing a new vehicle. General Dynamics and the Anniston Army Depot successfully completed the DVH pilot program in April 2013 and delivered 52 Stryker vehicles on time and under budget.
