Oshkosh Defense has received four additional orders from the US Army to provide its Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV), the company announced on 14 June.

The company will supply a total of 771 FMTVs under the orders worth a combined $159.6 million. The current generation of FMTVs is comprised of 17 models ranging from 2.5t to 10t payloads, enabling the vehicle to perform a wide range of missions.

The FMTVs support combat missions, relief efforts and logistics and supply operations. The vehicles feature a parts commonality of more than 80%, resulting in streamlined maintenance, training, sustainment and overall cost efficiency for the US Army, Army Reserves, National Guard and US Air Force.

Pat Williams, VP and general manager of army and Marine Corps programmes at Oshkosh Defense, said: ‘Oshkosh is eager to continue delivering on army and air force requirements for a well protected, versatile vehicle that supports a broad range of missions, both at home and abroad. With the most recent award, Oshkosh will surpass production of the 28,000th vehicle under the current A1P2 contract.’
