OSHKOSH DEFENSE CELEBRATES DELIVERY OF 25,000TH FMTV TO U.S. ARMY
OSHKOSH, Wis., (November 6, 2017) — Oshkosh Defense, LLC, an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE: OSK) company, is celebrating today the delivery of its 25,000th Family of Medium Tactical Vehicle (FMTV) to the U.S. Army.
The U.S. Army originally awarded the FMTV A1P2 requirements contract to Oshkosh Defense in 2009. Orders under the current FMTV A1P2 contract are authorized through August 2019.
“FMTV continues to be an exemplary program for Oshkosh Defense, in support of the U.S. Army. The FMTV program embodies the hard work and commitment of many team members – including the U.S. Army and our dedicated Oshkosh employees – who apply their professionalism and expertise, and work in a collaborative manner, to deliver the very best medium tactical vehicle for our soldiers,” said Pat Williams, Vice President and General Manager of Army and Marine Corps Programs at Oshkosh Defense. “Our Oshkosh Defense team continues to work in tandem with our Army customer to achieve schedule and cost control goals while delivering vehicles with high quality and performance.”
Today, the Oshkosh FMTV can be seen operating around the world, supporting the missions of the U.S. Army and National Guard, as well as international allies overseas. The Oshkosh FMTV equips soldiers with crew-protecting armor and advanced technologies to provide the versatility, mobility and protection as they perform their missions at home and abroad.
In May 2017, Oshkosh submitted a proposal in response to the U.S. Army’s request for proposal for the future FMTV A2 production effort. Oshkosh’s proposed FMTV A2 vehicle offering addresses the U.S. Army’s need for increased payload and improved survivability, ride quality, and mobility for the FMTV vehicle platform. The next generation FMTV A2 will be comprised of 16 models and three trailers. The U.S. Army anticipates a contract award announcement in the second quarter of fiscal year 2018.
