OSHKOSH, Wis. -- Oshkosh Defense, a division of Oshkosh Corporation, has been awarded a delivery order from the U.S. Army Tank-automotive and Armaments Command (TACOM) Life Cycle Management Command (LCMC) to supply more than 100 next-generation Oshkosh® Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Trucks (HEMTT) to the U.S. Army National Guard.

The delivery order, the first the company has received for its new HEMTT A4 vehicles for the National Guard and issued under the Family of Heavy Tactical Vehicles (FHTV) contract, is valued at more than $38 million. Under the delivery order, Oshkosh Defense will manufacture and supply more than 100 new HEMTT A4s. The variants that will be produced are the M978A4 fuel tanker and the M985A4 cargo truck.

“The HEMTT A4 features performance and protection upgrades and will be a significant addition to the National Guard’s fleet,” said Andy Hove, Oshkosh Corporation executive vice president and president, Oshkosh Defense. “Whether mobilized for disaster relief at home or in-theater operations abroad, National Guard units will continue to rely on these heavy-payload vehicles for their many different logistics missions.”

This next-generation vehicle incorporates a fully air-conditioned and armor-ready cab, more powerful drivetrain, improved suspension, safety improvements, and other enhancements. The Oshkosh HEMTT A4s are long term armor strategy (LTAS) compliant and come off the assembly line fitted with upgraded suspensions and integral (“A” kit) armor. They also will be ready to receive an add-on (“B” kit) armor appliqué that can be quickly and easily installed in the field.
