Additional FMTVs ordered for US Army

28th March 2012 - 16:34 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Oshkosh Defense has announced that the US Army TACOM Life Cycle Management Command (LCMC) has ordered additional Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) trucks and trailers for the US Army. Oshkosh made the announcement in a 28 March 2012 company statement.

The order calls for more than 2,500 new vehicles for the US Army fleet, bringing the total vehicles ordered to more than 29,000 FMTVs.

Oshkosh said it would ‘continue to offer fleet improvements by developing prototypes with upgraded technology’, such as the TAK-4 independent suspension system that improves off-road mobility, ride quality and protection capabilities.

Oshkosh Defense’s rigorous production and quality processes ensure on-time delivery of high-quality trucks and trailers. The FMTV is a series of 17 models ranging from 2.5-ton to 10-ton payloads. Vehicles have a parts commonality of more than 80 percent, resulting in streamlined maintenance, training, sustainment and overall cost efficiency.

This is the latest order under the five-year FMTV contract awarded to Oshkosh Defense for the production of trucks and trailers, as well as support services and training, through calendar year 2015. The order is valued at more than $294 million and deliveries are scheduled to be completed in February 2014.
