Oshkosh has won a $40 million contract from the US Army for the procurement of Family of Heavy Tactical Vehicles or FHTV.
The delivery order comes from the U.S. Army Tank-Automotive and Armaments Command. Under the contract, Oshkosh will install the latest model configuration to the Army's fleet of Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Trucks, or HEMTT, enabling them to be set at "zero-mile, zero-hour conditions," the same as newly produced vehicles.
The HEMTT is a 13-ton, diesel-powered, eight-wheel drive tactical truck used by the U.S. military used for hauling gear and equipment.
"Our recapitalization services officer significant cost savings to the Army Reserves by returning vehicles to current operational readiness with the same performance and life cycle advantages of a new vehicle," Pat Williams, Oshkosh Defense vice president and general manager of Army and Marine Corps programs, said in a press release.
"Recapitalized vehicles are assembled on the same production line as new vehicles, and put through the same extensive performance tests and inspection procedures as new vehicles. As the Original Equipment Manufacturer, Oshkosh can modernize these vehicles to the latest configuration and quickly return them to operations," said Williams.
Work is expected to be completed by fiscal year 2019.
