Oshkosh Defense, a division of Oshkosh Corporation, will deliver more than 400 Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) trucks and trailers to the US Army following an order from the US Army TACOM Life Cycle Management Command (LCMC). The FMTV supports Army and National Guard units at home and abroad in combat operations, relief efforts, unit resupply missions and other functions.

 

"These reliable and very capable Oshkosh-built vehicles keep soldiers and supply chains moving on the battlefield," said Mike Ivy, vice president and general manager of Army Programs for Oshkosh Defense. "As part of our complete sustainment support for this program, we also started FMTV training earlier this year at our facility in Warren, Mich., and at our training facilities in Oshkosh. We will take our mobile training wherever the customer wants it."

 

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 for the US Army and National Guard.

 

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 2014. The order is valued at more than $71 million and deliveries are scheduled to be completed in February 2013.
