Oshkosh Defense has submitted a proposal in response to the US Request for Proposal (RFP) for Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) A2 production effort.
“As the missions change, so should the vehicles built to support those missions,” said Pat Williams, vice president and general manager of Army and Marine Corps Programs at Oshkosh Defense in a statement today.
Oshkosh Defense’s FMTV A2 proposal is in response to the US Army’s competitive RFP that requires bidders to validate and produce an upgraded FMTV A2 fleet of vehicles with improved payload, under body protection, ride quality, mobility, engine power, electronics, diagnostics, and safety enhancements.
The Firm Fixed Price (FFP) and Cost Plus Fixed Fee (CPFF) requirements contract will establish pricing for up to seven order years. The Government can buy over 2,400 trucks and 1,200 underbody kits across the contract.
The scope of work includes delivering upgraded vehicles for test and logistics development as soon as 450 days after contract award, expected in the spring of 2018.
The future generation FMTV A2 will be comprised of 16 models and associated trailers capable of carrying payloads ranging from 3-ton to 10-ton, and performing a wide range of duties from supporting combat missions, to relief efforts, to logistics and supply operations.
The Oshkosh FMTV A2 features parts commonality that results in streamlined maintenance, training, sustainment and overall cost efficiency for the US Army, Army Reserves, National Guard, and US Air Force.
