OSHKOSH, Wis. (August 4, 2021) — The U.S. Army Tank-Automotive and Armaments Command (TACOM) Life Cycle Management Command (LCMC) announced that it has awarded Oshkosh Defense, a wholly owned subsidiary of Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE: OSK), a $152 million delivery order for 541 Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) A2 variant.
The FMTV A2 is a modernized version of the FMTV A1P2, which has been in service with the U.S. Army since 1988. Since 2009, Oshkosh Defense has been the leading provider of the U.S. Army’s medium tactical wheeled vehicle fleet, producing over 41,000 FMTV A1P2 and A2 trucks and trailers.
Today’s announced order signifies the continuation of FMTV A2 production orders following successful testing performance and the production ramp-up of A2 as FMTV A1P2 production begins to ramp down. FMTV A1P2 production is expected to end in September 2021.
“For over a decade, the Oshkosh FMTV A1P2 has provided the U.S. Army with multi-purpose transportation in support of line and local haul missions, carrying Soldiers, cargo, and essential equipment,” said Pat Williams, Vice President and General Manager of U.S. Army and U.S. Marine Corps programs for Oshkosh Defense. “The advanced performance capabilities of the FMTV A2 enhances our Soldiers’ ability to perform their missions safely and efficiently.”
The FMTV A2 offers greater protection levels and increased payload capacity while providing Soldiers with improved ride quality and mobility to keep pace with today’s maneuvering forces. These advanced capabilities position the FMTV A2 as a key enabler to the U.S. Army’s modernization initiatives, including Command Post Integrated Infrastructure (CPI2) and Integrated Fires Mission Command (IFMC).
The FMTV A2 fleet is comprised of 16 models and associated trailers capable of carrying payloads ranging from 3-ton to 10-ton and performing a wide range of duties from supporting combat missions to relief efforts, to logistics and supply operations.
