Oshkosh has won four additional orders for a total of 771 Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) for $159.6 million to the US Army.
“With the most recent award, Oshkosh will surpass production of the 28,000th vehicle under the current A1P2 contract,” Pat Williams, vice president and general manager of Army and Marine Corps programs at Oshkosh Defense last Thursday.
Oshkosh Defense was first awarded the FMTV A1P2 contract in 2009. The current generation FMTV is comprised of 17 models ranging from 2.5-ton to 10-ton payloads, enabling the vehicle to perform a wide range of missions, and to support combat missions, relief efforts and logistics and supply operations.
The Oshkosh FMTV integrates technologies needed on the battlefield and in support of Homeland Security.
