OSHKOSH, Wis. -- Oshkosh Defense, a division of Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE:OSK), has delivered the 15,000th Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) truck to the U.S. Army and National Guard – setting quality and delivery records for the program. Since being awarded the FMTV contract in 2010, Oshkosh has delivered more than 21,000 FMTV trucks and trailers.

The U.S. Army and National Guard rely on the FMTV at home and abroad in tactical and combat operations, relief efforts, and unit resupply missions. Oshkosh has delivered soldiers unprecedented FMTV quality. In addition, the company operates an enterprise-wide supplier network for multiple vehicle programs to provide economies of scale across fleets.

“The FMTV program is exemplary of the quality and value that Oshkosh provides to our military customers across all of our operations,” said John Bryant, senior vice president of Defense Programs for Oshkosh Defense. “Our team has worked in harmony with the Army’s goals and schedule from the onset to produce and deliver a vehicle with Oshkosh quality and performance, which provides soldiers with greater confidence as they perform their missions.”

As part of the FMTV contract, Oshkosh has delivered the FMTV Wrecker, with its tested retrieval system that leverages Oshkosh's extensive wrecker experience based on the U.S. Army's Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Truck (HEMTT). Fielding began in December 2012.

The five-year FMTV requirements contract for the production of trucks and trailers, as well as support services and training, runs through fiscal year 2014. Oshkosh also is actively pursuing opportunities for its FMTV with U.S. allies and coalition partners around the world. To date, the company has received foreign military sales (FMS) orders from three international militaries.

The Oshkosh FMTV is a series of 17 models and 23 configurations ranging from 2.5-ton to 10-ton payloads. The vehicles feature crew-protecting armor and advanced technologies to provide the capability, versatility, mobility and protection to move troops and supplies, recover vehicles and weapon systems, or haul equipment wherever the mission requires. Commonality of parts of over 80 percent across chassis variants optimizes logistics efficiency and reduces operational costs. The Long-Term Armor Strategy-compliant cab and other advanced technologies give military personnel the enhanced protection they need to confidently complete their missions.
