The U.S. Army Contracting Command has placed four additional orders with Oshkosh Defense for a total of 771 Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV), valued at $159.6 million.
The Oshkosh (FMTV) stands alone as the get-things-done resource for military operations.
Crew-protecting armor and advanced technologies work in concert 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.
For durability, reliability and advanced performance, the FMTV has been proven time and time again.
It meets the demands – of the mission, of the battlefield and of the military personnel who rely on it.
Commonality of parts, over 80 percent, across chassis variants significantly reduces the logistics burden as well as operational and support costs.
And with a Long-Term Armor Strategy-compliant cab and other advanced technologies, military personnel get the enhanced protection they need to confidently complete their missions.
The current generation FMTV is comprised of 17 models ranging from 2.5-ton to 10-ton payloads, enabling the vehicle to perform a wide range of missions, and to support combat missions, relief efforts and logistics and supply operations.
The mobility and survivability features of the Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) have been revolutionized with the Oshkosh Defense® FMTV Enhanced Protection & Mobility Demonstrator (EPMD).
Equipped with the patented TAK-4® independent suspension system, the FMTV EPMD enhances mobility over rough terrain, allowing for more weight on the front and back axles.
This provides the ability to retrofit FMTVs with an Underbody Improvement Kit (UIK) for enhanced safety and protection.
Available in kit form and backed with over 6,000 miles of durability testing, the FMTV EPMD is the innovative, proven, exceptionally mobile solution for greater survivability in off-road situations.
- Improves off-road mobility and ride quality with proven TAK-4® independent suspension
- Enhances survivability through higher axle weight rating, allowing for additional protection
- Allows retrofitting of Underbody Improvement Kit (UIK) for increased protection against underbody IEDs
- Features improved seating and floormats for added protection
