Twin Disc ( TWIN) was awarded a $6.9 million contract to supply transmissions for the U.S. Army's M88A2 Hercules combat recovery vehicle.

The M88A2 is a full-tracked armored vehicle used to perform battlefield rescue and recovery of heavy tanks and other combat vehicles.

The order is for XT1410 transmissions and is expected to be completed by June 30, 2007. Work will be performed at the company's Racine, Wis., facilities. This contract is not part of a previously announced contract to supply the U.S. Army for the same transmission.

"We are pleased with this order as we continue to help supply the U.S. Army with powerful transmission products for critical recovery and rescue operations," CEO Michael E. Batten said.

On Wednesday, Twin Disc shares fell 67 cents to $34.99.
