Oshkosh Corporation receives $410 million delivery order for Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles

10th May 2010 - 18:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Oshkosh Corporation, a leading manufacturer of specialty vehicles and vehicle bodies, announced today that its Defense division has received a delivery order valued at more than $410 million from the TACOM Life Cycle Management Command (LCMC) for the production and delivery of 2,634 Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) trucks and trailers for the US Army. This award is for deliveries scheduled between March and December 2011. To date, Oshkosh Corporation has received orders valued at more than $690 million under the five-year FMTV requirements contract.

Oshkosh Corporation utilized its own resources to lean forward before its original contract award was affirmed by the Army on February 12, 2010, enabling the company to deliver FMTV vehicles and trailers according to the Army's original schedule. The company will begin supplying initial trucks to the Army this month for performance and durability testing. Production deliveries will begin in October 2010. All Oshkosh FMTV vehicles will include the company's Long-Term Armor Strategy (LTAS)-compliant armor solution.

"Oshkosh Corporation's world-class production capabilities, coupled with our independent investments in this program, will ensure vehicles are delivered without any disruption to the original timeline," said Robert G. Bohn, Oshkosh Corporation chairman and chief executive officer. "We are closely engaged with the Army and moving forward on all necessary processes to maintain this schedule and deliver high-quality trucks and trailers to meet the Warfighters' needs."

The five-year, multi-billion-dollar contract calls for the production of an estimated 23,000 trucks and trailers, as well as support services and training. The FMTV is a series of 17 models and 23 variants ranging from 2.5-ton to 10-ton payloads.
