OSHKOSH, Wis. — October 16, 2007 — Oshkosh Truck Corporation [NYSE:OSK] announced today that its Defense Group will open a 12,000 square foot logistics facility in Oceanside, Calif., just minutes from the Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base. The new Oceanside Regional Logistics Center, scheduled to open in November, will help U.S. Marine Corps units reduce downtime and improve overall operational readiness by assisting them in the service, maintenance and training of vehicles including the Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacement (MTVR) and Logistics Vehicle System (LVS) vehicles.

“The Oceanside Regional Logistics Center will open next month to meet the military’s increased maintenance demands,” said John Stoddart, Oshkosh Truck executive vice president and president, Defense Group. “The location and timely opening will help support U.S. soldiers, sailors and marines, and improve their overall operational readiness.”

The Oceanside Regional Logistics Center will feature service bays and a fabrication shop. Technicians will provide supplemental maintenance programs and services ranging from simple repair and preventive maintenance, to vehicle overhaul and even limited rebuild capability, including:

— New product and rebuild warranty service

— Oshkosh Truck parts support

— Field service technicians/representatives

— Oshkosh Truck vehicle training

— Oshkosh Truck hydraulic component cylinder/re-build and hose fabrication

— Oshkosh Truck upgrade kit installations
