Oshkosh Defense Awarded $21 Million Delivery Order to Rebuild U.S. Army Family of Heavy Tactical Vehicles

Category: Contracts

OSHKOSH, Wis. -- Oshkosh Defense, a division of Oshkosh Corporation , has received a delivery order from the U.S. Army Tank-automotive and Armaments Command Life Cycle Management Command (TACOM LCMC) to supply more than 100 remanufactured vehicles and trailers.

The delivery order is valued at $21 million and production is to be completed by April 2010.

The order includes the remanufacturing of almost 50 M1070 Heavy Equipment Transporters (HET), 50 Palletized Load Systems (PLS) and more than 20 PLS Trailers (PLST). The PLS configurations produced under the delivery order include the M1074 and M1075.

Through Oshkosh’s remanufacturing and recapitalization services, heavily used vehicles are returned to Oshkosh, stripped to their frame rails and completely rebuilt to like-new condition. Vehicles are considered to have zero miles and zero hours, at no more than 75 percent the cost of a new vehicle. Vehicles are put through the same road tests, performance tests and inspection procedures as new vehicles before being delivered with a standard bumper-to-bumper warranty.

The Oshkosh HET is designed to rapidly transport battle tanks, fighting and recovery vehicles, armored vehicles and construction equipment, as well as a six-person crew, so the vehicles and soldiers arrive in mission-ready condition.

Built to load and unload a variety of cargo, the PLS is designed to meet the U.S. Army’s distribution and resupply needs in even the most challenging military missions. The PLS truck and trailer form a self-contained system that reduces the need for forklifts or other material-handling equipment, and they both carry a demountable cargo bed, also known as a flatrack, that features a 16.5-ton payload capacity.

Both vehicles are a part of the Family of Heavy Tactical Vehicles (FHTV), which also includes the Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Truck (HEMTT). Oshkosh Defense has produced and delivered more than 30,000 HET, PLS and HEMTT vehicles under the FHTV contracts, and it was the first manufacturer to supply the Army with Long Term Armor Strategy (LTAS)-compliant cabs.
