Oshkosh to Supply Medium Tactical Vehicles for US Army

Wisconsin-based Oshkosh Defense has received a contract to deliver medium tactical vehicles to the US Army.

The $108.9 million order covers production and delivery of the company’s proprietary Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles A2 (FMTV A2) and corresponding trailers.

Oshkosh wrote that the systems will be distributed for army use and projects supporting foreign military sales with international partners.

The FMTV A2 is a modernized version of the company’s FMTV A1P2 product line in service with the US military since the 1980s.

Each FMTV A2 has crew-protecting armor, enhanced engine power, increased alternator capacity, and a reinforced underbody chassis and suspension.

The vehicle is offered in tractor, wrecker, dump, load handling system, and cargo 4×4 and 6×6 variants.

“We are pleased to provide these capabilities to allied partners around the globe.”
