Some details from Oshkosh about its plans for the upcoming CANSEC 2013, the military equipment trade show that takes place in Ottawa at the end of the month:
Oshkosh will have three vehicles on display – the Oshkosh HEMTT A4, the Oshkosh Light Combat Tactical All-Terrain Vehicle (L-ATV), and the Oshkosh Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) 6×6.
The likely Oshkosh submission for Canada’s Medium Support Vehicle System (MSVS) Standard Military Pattern (SMP) program is based on the leading-edge HEMTT platform, which has accumulated more than one billion real-word operational kilometres in a full range of mission profiles. The Oshkosh L-ATV was one of three vehicles downselected in the current phase of the U.S. military’s Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) program, which will replace a portion of its HMMWV fleet as vehicles reach the end of their service lives. Oshkosh will also have a virtual trainer kiosk featuring the HEMTT A4 LHS Virtual Trainer.
