Oshkosh Supports MSVS SMP Programme With Best-in-Class Technical and Economic Value

OTTAWA, Ontario -- As the backbone of the Canadian Armys logistics fleet reaches the end of its service life, vehicle modernization programmes such as the Medium Support Vehicle System (MSVS) Standard Military Pattern (SMP) will help restore the capabilities and protection that troops need to fulfil their missions. At CANSEC 2013 in Ottawa, Ontario, Oshkosh Defense, a division of Oshkosh Corporation, will present a full range of advanced vehicle platforms and life-cycle sustainment solutions for Canadian Forces.

Oshkosh Defense is committed to supporting the Canadian Department of National Defence and ensuring that troops have the survivable and technologically advanced vehicles they so urgently need, said Serge Buchakjian, senior vice president and general manager of International Programs for Oshkosh Defense. The Canadian government is actively pursuing its strategy to modernize its tactical vehicle fleet, and we intend to provide a compelling solution including advanced vehicles, complete life-cycle support services and measurable economic benefits by leveraging a nationwide network of partners and suppliers.

The Oshkosh MSVS SMP solution is designed to improve the protection and performance capabilities of the Canadian Forces medium-payload fleet, both today and for decades to come. The Oshkosh MSVS SMP vehicle was specifically designed to meet the Canadian program requirements with advanced features, including a high-performance drive train, as well as advanced suspension, braking and armour protection systems. The MSVS SMP from Oshkosh has accumulated more than one billion real-word operational kilometres in a full range of missions around the globe.

Oshkosh will display the Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Truck (HEMTT) A4 at CANSEC along with the Oshkosh Light Combat Tactical All-Terrain Vehicle (L-ATV) and the Oshkosh Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) 5-ton wrecker.

As the DND fields its new MSVS fleet, training will be critical to operational readiness and safety. At CANSEC, Oshkosh Defense also will demonstrate its latest module of the Oshkosh Virtual Trainer for the HEMTT load handling system (LHS). Oshkosh currently provides a multi-faceted training curriculum including classroom, hands-on and virtual training for military vehicle operators and service professionals. Oshkosh virtual training provides a 20 percent or more cost savings compared to a traditional classroom-only approach. Additionally, students are able to demonstrate skill proficiency in the virtual environment before performing tasks on the actual vehicle, where more risks are involved.

To see the vehicles and technology on display, visit Oshkoshs indoor booth #1001 in The Ernst & Young Centre (formerly the CE Centre) and outdoor booth #2029. Oshkosh leadership will be available on-site to discuss the companys commitment to Canada and full range of vehicle and sustainment offerings.
