OSHKOSH, Wis. (May 3, 2021) — The U.S. Army Contracting Command announced that it has awarded Oshkosh Defense, a wholly owned subsidiary of Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE: OSK), a three-year extension to the FHTV IV contract and initial delivery orders valued at $146.8 Million.

Under the extension, Oshkosh will provide new and recapitalized Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Trucks (HEMTT), Palletized Load System (PLS) trucks and trailers, and Heavy Equipment Transporters (HET). The initial delivery orders call for a total of 353 new and recapitalized vehicles.

“For decades we’ve worked closely with the U.S. Army to modernize the FHTV fleet, and we are honored that they’ve called on us to continue to provide our Soldiers with these mission critical vehicles,” said Pat Williams, Vice President and General Manager of U.S. Army and Marine Corps Programs for Oshkosh Defense. “We look forward to working with the U.S. Army to further modernize the FHTV fleet in support of current and future missions.”

A key aspect of the FHTV’s design is its capacity to support a multitude of roles. The FHTV’s flexible architecture also accommodates additional capabilities such as Condition Based Maintenance (CBM), Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), autonomy, on-board power, and other proven technologies.
