Oshkosh Defense has been awarded a $409 million contract by the US Army for the production of 1,661 Family of Medium Tactical Vehicle (FMTV) trucks and 31 trailers, the company announced on 29 September.

The contract falls under the seventh order year of the FMTV contract. Deliveries are expected to continue until July 2018.

The current generation FMTV A1P2 includes 17 models ranging from 2.5-ton to ten-ton payloads. The vehicles are designed for a wide range of missions including logistics and supply operations, relief efforts and combat missions. The vehicles feature a parts commonality of over 80% to streamline maintenance, sustainment, training and cost efficiency for the air force, army, national guard and army reserves.

Patrick Williams, Oshkosh Corporation vice president and general manager of army programs, said: ‘Together with US Army Tank-automotive and Armaments Command, we have successfully integrated more than 1,000 engineering changes that have improved the quality, reliability and manufacturability of the MTVs and LMTVs.’
