US Army Picks Oshkosh Defense’s Semitrailer For Heavy Equipment Transporter

Oshkosh Defense has won a $13.3 million contract to produce semitrailers for the Heavy Equipment Transporter (HET) of the US Army.

The contract award is in response to an Operational Needs Statement (ONS) from the U.S. Army Europe for a semitrailer that can deliver increased payload capability while gaining European road permissions, the company said in a statement Thursday.

 The contract, initially awarded at $13.3M, has a maximum value of $109.8M and calls for 170 semitrailers to be delivered between FY20 and FY21.

The company initially designed the HET to quickly move mission-critical equipment such as tanks, armored vehicles, and recovery vehicles.

The Army selected Oshkosh after stereotypes of the new semitrailer successfully finished three months of testing and evaluation at Aberdeen Test Center in Maryland.
