Category: Defence Industry

OSHKOSH, Wis. -- Oshkosh Defense, a division of Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE:OSK), will supply more than 3,700 Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) trucks and trailers to the U.S. National Guard under a new delivery order from the U.S. Army TACOM Life Cycle Management Command (LCMC).

The National Guard uses the FMTV fleet to transport soldiers, equipment and supplies in support of its broad tactical operations during times of peace and war.

“National Guard units rely on the FMTV to move troops safely and keep supply chains running in missions at home and abroad,” said Mike Ivy, vice president and general manager of Army Programs for Oshkosh Defense. “Once delivered, we support these vehicles and our citizen soldiers with complete life-cycle sustainment and training services.”

This is the latest order under the five-year FMTV contract awarded to Oshkosh Defense for the production of trucks and trailers, as well as support services and training, through calendar year 2014. The delivery order includes more than 2,050 trucks and more than 1,650 trailers. Deliveries are scheduled to begin in November 2011 and finish in May 2013. The order is valued at more than $513 million.

The FMTV is a series of 17 models ranging from 2.5-ton to 10-ton payloads. Vehicles feature a parts commonality of more than 80 percent, resulting in streamlined maintenance, training, sustainment and overall cost efficiency for the U.S. Army and National Guard.
