Oshkosh to reset US Army M-ATV fleet

9th February 2015 - 09:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Oshkosh has won a contract from the US Army to reset its Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) All-Terrain Vehicles (M-ATVs), the company announced on 5 February.

The programme to reset 800 Oshkosh-made MRAP M-ATVs will help the army standardise its M-ATV fleet configuration and achieve 100% mission readiness of its primary MRAP platform.

Oshkosh won a reset contract for 500 M-ATVs on 6 August 2014 and three additional contract options for 100 M-ATVs each on 12 December. It has already begun deliveries of the reset vehicles and will continue to deliver them up to September 2015.

The reset process for M-ATVs begins with a comprehensive vehicle configuration and condition inspection. After this, the company completes repairs, replaces missing parts and installs the necessary upgrade kits to match the current configuration of each M-ATV variant in the enduring fleet. These kits include automatic fire extinguishing systems, an underbody improvement kit and other safety-related improvements and more.

John Bryant, senior vice president, defence programmes, Oshkosh Defense, said: 'The M-ATV reset programme will ensure that all soldiers operating in M-ATVs will have fully-capable, mission-ready vehicles with all of the latest protection and technologies.'
