Oshkosh Defense to Bolster the U.S. Marine Corps` Heavy Fleet

OSHKOSH, Wis. -- Oshkosh Defense, a division of Oshkosh Corporation, will supply the U.S. Marine Corps with more than 100 Logistics Vehicle System Replacement (LVSR) Cargo Variants and 120 enhanced protection kits following an order from the Marine Corps Systems Command (MARCORSYSCOM).

“The LVSR is an advanced tactical vehicle built for today’s logistics missions, which often require Marines to travel off-road in harsh environments,” said John Bryant, vice president and general manager of Marine Corps Programs for Oshkosh Defense. “When troops need to travel on rough terrain in combat zones, they need improved survivability, mobility and enhanced performance to help them accomplish their objectives – and the LVSR delivers those capabilities.”

The LVSR is produced in three variants – cargo, wrecker and tractor – and features an on-road payload capacity of 22.5 tons and an off-road payload capacity of 16.5 tons. It is equipped with the Oshkosh Command Zone™ embedded diagnostics system to provide real-time performance feedback on vital vehicle information and uses the company’s patented TAK-4® independent suspension system for off-road mobility in the most challenging environments. LVSRs have been operating in Afghanistan since September 2009.

Production of the vehicles is scheduled to begin in August 2011 and be completed in April 2012. This order has a value of nearly $50 million.
