Fleet Modernization – Recapitalization

Quickly upgrade fleets with the latest configurations and technologies.

Technologies progress, terrains change and threats evolve as missions move from one environment to the next. It is not always viable to replace entire fleets to remain ahead of tomorrow’s encounters. Oshkosh® recapitalization services respond rapidly with vehicle enhancements, reducing total life cycle costs. Upgrade vehicles to the latest configurations, quickly returning them to operation with the same performance and life cycle cost advantage of a new vehicle. Vehicles come off the line in zero-mile, zero-hour condition.
