6th September 2012 - 17:21 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Oshkosh Defense has received a delivery order from the US Marine Corps Systems Command (MARCORSYSCOM) for more than Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacements (MTVR). Production on the vehicles will begin in April 2013 and be completed in September 2014, with a total order value of more than $67 million.

The MTVR is the medium-payload vehicle for the US Marine Corps (USMC) and US Navy Seabees, and has been used extensively in Iraq and Afghanistan. According to the company, the MTVRs delivered under this order will support marines and seabees in ‘a wide array of tactical missions and on the most challenging terrain’.

The MTVR is available in several variants for the transportation of troops, materials and equipment. The vehicle uses the Oshkosh-patented TAK-4 independent suspension system to achieve a 70 percent off-road profile capability and 16 inches of independent wheel travel for extensive cross-country operations.

Oshkosh has delivered more than 11,000 MTVRs to the US Marines and US Navy Seabees to date. MTVR variants being produced under this order include the MK25 Cargo, and MK27 and MK28 Extended Cargo trucks.
