Optionally Manned Fighting Vehicle (OMFV)
The Oshkosh Defense OMFV is designed to defeat emerging threats with the flexibility to accommodate evolving requirements. This modular solution will bring transformational multi-domain operations to the Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV) fleet.
The Oshkosh Defense OMFV is backed by a proven team with more than a century of demonstrated experience in designing, manufacturing, and delivering tactical wheeled vehicles on time and on budget. The Oshkosh Defense OMFV consortium consists of Pratt Miller Defense, Hanwha Defense USA, Rafael Advanced Defense Systems, QinetiQ Inc., and Plasan. Each partner will contribute their best-in-class expertise in ground combat vehicles, turrets, armor, and autonomy to provide transformative solutions through Digital Engineering (DE) and Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA).
The Oshkosh Defense OMFV concept leverages the proven capability of Hanwha’s Redback chassis and Rafael’s SAMSON family of turrets. The Redback is one of two contenders for Australia’s Land 400 Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV), while the SAMSON family of turrets serves as the foundation for Oshkosh’s recently awarded Medium Caliber Weapon System (MCWS) contract with the U.S. Army.
