Oshkosh, Wis. & London, Ontario -- Oshkosh Defense, a division of Oshkosh Corporation, and General Dynamics Land Systems-Canada have finalized an agreement that will team the two companies in pursuit of two Canadian Department of National Defence (DND) wheeled vehicle programs, the Tactical Armoured Patrol Vehicle (TAPV) and the Standard Military Pattern (SMP) portion of the Medium Support Vehicle System (MSVS).
General Dynamics Land Systems, the Canadian company's parent corporation, is a business unit of General Dynamics.
The TAPV program will replace the Armoured Patrol Vehicle (APV) and the Coyote reconnaissance vehicle, and the MSVS program will replace the Medium Logistics truck fleet. The new programs will enhance the capabilities of the Canadian Forces with protected, high-performance vehicle fleets.
"We couldn't be happier that we are teamed with General Dynamics Land Systems-Canada, a proven leader in designing and supporting Canadian land systems," said Ron Ziebell, vice president and general manager, International Programs, Oshkosh Defense. "The superior offerings we can provide with General Dynamics Land Systems-Canada made our cooperation the obvious choice as we considered how best to serve the DND soldiers. General Dynamics Land Systems-Canada has a significant Canadian presence, which will allow for localized, Canada-based sustainment of these two programs in our effort to provide true complete lifecycle support of these programs."
"Oshkosh Defense vehicle platforms have proven, world-class performance capabilities and they push the engineering envelope to deliver the best tactical wheeled vehicle fleets in the field," said Dr. Sridhar Sridharan, senior vice-president of General Dynamics Land Systems-Canada. "We are pleased to be working with a company that can help deliver the survivable, off-road capable and technologically advanced vehicles that the Canadian Forces need for both the MSVS and TAPV."
