holding answer 15 November 2011

The original budgetary approval for Terrier was £304 million. The forecast final cost for demonstration and manufacture is some £328 million, which reflects the incorporation of customer driven requirement changes to ensure the vehicle can meet the operational challenges it is likely to face. The first 20 vehicles will be ready for operations in 2013, and all 60 will be in service by the end of 2014. The prime contractor is BAE Systems Global Combat Systems and the programme does not have any other consortium members.
