The U.S. Army has awarded Oshkosh Defense, LLC, an Oshkosh Corporation company, a $409 million contract to produce 1,661 Family of Medium Tactical Vehicle (FMTV) trucks and 31 trailers, under Order Year 7 of the current FMTV contract.
The current generation FMTV A1P2 is comprised of 17 models ranging from 2.5-ton to 10-ton payloads, enabling the vehicle to perform a wide range of missions, and to support combat missions, relief efforts and logistics and supply operations. The Oshkosh FMTV seamlessly integrates technologies needed on the battlefield and in support of Homeland Security.
The 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, Army Reserves, National Guard and U.S. Air Force. Deliveries will continue through July 2018.
Oshkosh Defense was first awarded the FMTV contract in 2009 and to date, has delivered more than 35,000 FMTV trucks and trailers while saving U.S. taxpayers more than $2 billion. During its seven years of FMTV production, the U.S. Department of Defense recognized Oshkosh Defense with the Value Engineering Achievement Award (in the Contractor category) for reducing product life-cycle costs while improving performance and reliability.
