FMTV 8.8-Ton LHS

The Oshkosh Defense® Family of Medium Tactical Vehicle (FMTV) 8.8-ton Load Handling System (LHS) provides military personnel the support they need on the battlefield. As an integral part of the supply and logistics chain, it is one of the exceptionally built Oshkosh FMTV variants meeting the Army combat support initiative. This self-contained load handling system has the capacity to carry and deliver a wide range of cargo via flatrack or container. Its maneuverability and smooth hydraulic operation increase efficiencies while reducing team member fatigue. Commonality of parts across chassis variants significantly reduces the logistics burden as well as operational and support costs. And a Long-Term Armor Strategy-compliant cab (LTAS) and other advanced technologies offer enhanced protection.
