Oshkosh Defense wins FMTV A2 contract
Oshkosh Defense has received a contract from the US Army to supply the Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) A2 variant, the company announced on 7 February.
The firm fixed price contract is for up to seven years of orders. The initial estimated contract value is $476 million with no cap on the number of vehicles the army may purchase.
Oshkosh Defense was first awarded the FMTV contract in 2009 and has delivered more than 36,000 FMTV trucks and trailers.
Oshkosh Defense submitted the FMTV A2 proposal in response to the US Army’s competitive RFP that required bidders to validate and produce an upgraded FMTV A2 fleet of vehicles with improved payload, underbody protection, ride quality, mobility, engine power, electronics, diagnostics, and safety enhancements.
The future generation FMTV A2 to be provided by Oshkosh will be comprised of 16 models and associated trailers capable of carrying payloads ranging from 3-10 ton, and performing a wide range of duties from supporting combat missions, to relief efforts, to logistics and supply operations.
Pat Williams, vice president and general manager of Army and Marine Corps programmes at Oshkosh Defense, said: ‘We are honoured that the US Army has selected Oshkosh Defense as the winner of the FMTV A2 production contract.
'With the Oshkosh FMTV A2, our troops are getting the safest, most capable, and reliable FMTV this programme has ever seen. We are fully prepared to build the next generation fleet of exceptional, cost-effective FMTVs to serve our troops in future missions.
