Oshkosh Defense Secures $76 Million in LVSR Delivery Orders

OSHKOSH, Wis. – Dec. 1, 2009 – Oshkosh Defense, a division of Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE:OSK), has been awarded two delivery orders to an existing contract with the U.S. Marine Corps Systems Command (MARCORSYSCOM) for nearly 200 Logistics Vehicle System Replacements (LVSR). The two delivery orders, valued at more than $76 million, bring the total number of LVSRs under contract to 854.

With improved survivability, mobility and performance, the next-generation LVSR expands on the original Logistics Vehicle System (LVS) produced by Oshkosh Corporation in the early 1980s. The Oshkosh® LVSR is used by the U.S. Marine Corps for the on- and off-road transportation of heavy payloads, such as munitions, fuel, water and heavy equipment. The vehicle, equipped with the Oshkosh patented TAK-4® independent suspension system for superior off-road mobility in the most severe environments, began arriving in Afghanistan in September. The LVSR comes in three variants – cargo, wrecker and fifth-wheel – and features an on-road payload capacity of 22.5 tons and an off-road payload capacity of 16.5 tons.

Production and delivery of the LVSRs, 40 of which are for the USMC Reserve Forces, extends through September 2010. All of the LVSRs will be manufactured in Oshkosh’s Wisconsin manufacturing facilities. Oshkosh delivered its requirement of nearly 40 LVSRs in November and set a record production number for the program when it produced more than 40 in October.
