Oshkosh Defense family of military vehicles in a row.


OSHKOSH, Wis. — Oshkosh Defense, LLC, an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE: OSK) business, announced today that the U.S. Army Contracting Command – Detroit Arsenal (ACC-DTA) placed orders valued at $231.9 million for modernized heavy tactical vehicles, kits and kit installs.

Under the orders, Oshkosh will produce new Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Truck (HEMTT) A4 tankers, cargos, wreckers, load handling systems (LHS), Common Bridge Transports (CBT) and Palletized Load System (PLS) A1s.

“We are extremely honored that the U.S. Army continues to call on Oshkosh to provide our Soldiers with the only heavy tactical vehicles proven to be rugged and flexible enough to meet the demands of contested logistics,” stated Pat Williams, chief programs officer at Oshkosh Defense. “Having produced more than 50,000 heavy tactical vehicles for the U.S. Military and its allied partners, these delivery orders underscore the unmatched reliability and versatility of the Oshkosh Defense Family of Heavy Tactical Vehicles (FHTVs).”

As part of the orders, Oshkosh will also integrate advanced capabilities into the PLS A1 fleet through recapitalization, which is a critical and cost-effective means to modernize the fleet, extend vehicle life, and reduce operating costs. For decades, Oshkosh has partnered with the U.S. Army to recapitalize over 20,000 heavy tactical vehicles and return to field operations in zero-miles zero-hours condition, and with the same warranty of a new vehicle.

Williams concluded, “Oshkosh is dedicated to our long-standing partnership with the U.S. Army to modernize the Oshkosh FHTV with new and enhanced capabilities through cost-effective and targeted upgrades. Room for growth as both threats and requirements evolve is key to these heavy platforms providing the payload, protection, and mobility to support our Warfighters in future combat environments.”
