Oshkosh Defense Canada, Inc. is committed to providing the Canadian Department of Defence with next-generation military vehicles to perform in a full range of missions from disaster recovery at home to major conflicts abroad and to protect troops for decades to come. The Oshkosh® Medium Support Vehicle System (MSVS) Standard Military Pattern (SMP) is a purpose-built vehicle platform that leverages decades of design, production and in-theatre sustainment experience to maximize performance and reliability while minimizing life cycle costs.

John Urias“Working closely with our Canadian industry partners and a growing network of Canadian suppliers, our Oshkosh MSVS SMP offering provides superior vehicle performance, sustainment across six continents, and ultimately, the best overall value for Canada,” said John Urias, Oshkosh Corporation executive vice president and president of Oshkosh Defense. “The Oshkosh MSVS SMP family of vehicles is the next generation of the world’s most trusted, battle-proven military platform in the field today. We are proud to present the Government of Canada with our MSVS SMP bid that meets or exceeds all project requirements, and most importantly, provides Canadian Soldiers with the modern logistics vehicles they need to perform their missions.”

Oshkosh’s strategic team members for MSVS SMP include DEW Engineering and Development, General Dynamics Land Systems – Canada, and Link Suspensions of Canada – Raydan Division.  Together, the Oshkosh team aligns the finest technology, manufacturing and sustainment capabilities for the MSVS SMP project.




The Oshkosh MSVS SMP solution also includes five years of In-Service Support (ISS) based on a mature logistics system that spans six continents.  In fact, Oshkosh has helped reduce military vehicle fleet life cycle costs as much as 70 percent.  With Canadian troops more frequently mobilized around the world for defence and humanitarian missions, complete life cycle sustainment is increasingly important to ensure mission readiness.
