Oshkosh Defense, LLC, an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE: OSK) company, announced that the U.S. Marine Corps has awarded a delivery order valued at more than $16 million for an additional 23 P-19R Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting (ARFF) vehicles.
Oshkosh began fielding the first P-19Rs in June of 2017 and in total, Oshkosh will deliver 164 P-19Rs through 2019.
“The Oshkosh P-19R Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting vehicle integrates combat-proven performance and advanced firefighting technology to deliver cutting-edge on-road and off-road firefighting capabilities,” said Pat Williams, Vice President and General Manager of Army and Marine Corps Programs at Oshkosh Defense. “The P-19R provides unmatched off-road mobility and the latest in military-class vehicle technologies to take our Marines where they need to be quickly and safely.”

The P-19R is also outfitted with advanced Striker®firefighting systems from Oshkosh Airport Products, the industry-leading ARFF vehicle producer.
The Oshkosh P-19R will be on display at several upcoming events, including EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, WI this week, at Marine Week in Detroit, MI from September 6-10, as well as at Modern Day Marine in Quantico, VA from September 19-21.
