Oshkosh Defense will begin the production and deployment phase of the P-19 Replacement (P-19R) Aircraft Rescue Fire Fighting (ARFF) vehicle program for the US Marine Corps.
Oshkosh was awarded a delivery order under the P-19R contract to supply the first LRIP vehicles to support Production Verification Testing (PVT). Oshkosh announced on Monday that it will begin P-19R production this month with vehicles slated for delivery to PVT beginning in November 2015.
The P-19R contract won by Oshkosh extends through 2018 with the purpose of replacing the P-19A fleet, which was first fielded in 1984 and is reaching the end of its service life. The next-generation P-19R will give Marines greater off-road capability, speed and transportability for a full range of firefighting missions.
Oshkosh was awarded the P-19R contract in May 2013 and has since successfully completed all required government development testing and evaluation and readiness reviews required to move the program through Milestone C approval and into Low Rate Initial Production (LRIP).
The P-19R vehicle is built to help firefighting crews effectively respond and carry out the mission. It delivers unprecedented levels of performance and acceleration with its 600 horsepower engine that allows for speeds up to 70 mph. It is crucial that Marines have the ability to respond quickly to missions regardless of off-road or on-road environments.
Oshkosh Defense will be showcasing Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) solution as well as its Virtual Task Trainer (VTT) at the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) 2015 Global Force Symposium and Exposition. The Oshkosh JLTV solution addresses the US Army and Marine Corps need for a lightweight, highly-mobile, net-ready vehicle with superior levels of protection so that War fighters can fulfill their missions even when in harm's way
