The U.S. Army has awarded Oshkosh Defense a $409 million contract to produce 1,661 Family of Medium Tactical Vehicle (FMTV) trucks and 31 trailers, under Order Year 7 of the current FMTV contract. Deliveries will continue through July 2018.
The current generation FMTV A1P2 is comprised of 17 models ranging from 2.5-ton to 10-ton payloads that enable the vehicle to perform a wide range of missions, including combat support, relief efforts and logistics and supply operations.
The Oshkosh FMTV integrates technologies needed on the battlefield and in support of Homeland Security. The vehicles feature a parts commonality of more than 80 percent, resulting in streamlined maintenance, training, sustainment and overall cost efficiency for the U.S. Army, Army Reserves, National Guard and U.S. Air Force.
Oshkosh Defense was first awarded the FMTV contract in 2009 and to date, has delivered more than 35,000 FMTV trucks and trailers.
