The U.S. Army has awarded Oshkosh Defense a $476.2-million-dollar seven-year contract to build the latest Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles for it.
Oshkosh, headquartered in Wisconsin, expects to complete the A2 variant vehicles by Feb. 7, 2022, the U.S. Army announced
The 15 variants in the Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) form the core of the USA’s new state-of-the-art medium military transport truck fleet. Which in turn forms the core of the “mature logistics capability” seen in theatres of action worldwide. The Trucks produced under the Engineering Change Proposal will feature a higher capacity chassis to carry enhanced protection, a higher output alternator to simplify the electrical system and feed the growing demand for power, support enhanced vehicle diagnostics, increase engine power and performance, and introduce key safety features like electronic stability control.
