Oshkosh Defense is celebrating the delivery of its 25,000th Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) to the U.S. Army, according to a company press release.
The FMTV A1P2 requirements contract was originally awarded to Oshkosh Defense by the U.S. Army in 2009. Orders under the current FMTV A1P2 contract are authorized through August 2019.
“FMTV continues to be an exemplary program for Oshkosh Defense, in support of the U.S. Army. The FMTV program embodies the hard work and commitment of many team members – including the U.S. Army and our dedicated Oshkosh employees – who apply their professionalism and expertise, and work in a collaborative manner, to deliver the very best medium tactical vehicle for our soldiers,” said Pat Williams, Vice President and General Manager of Army and Marine Corps Programs at Oshkosh Defense. “Our Oshkosh Defense team continues to work in tandem with our Army customer to achieve schedule and cost control goals while delivering vehicles with high quality and performance.”
Oshkosh submitted a proposal in response to the U.S. Army’s RfP for the future FMTV A2 production effort in May 2017. The proposed FMTV A2 vehicle offers improved payload and survivability, ride quality, and mobility for the platform, and would be comprised of 16 models and three trailers. Contract award announcement is anticipated for the second quarter of fiscal year 2018.
