Oshkosh Defense Books $152M Army Delivery Order for A2 Medium Tactical Vehicles

Oshkosh‘s defense business has secured a $152 million delivery order from the U.S. Army Tank-Automotive and Armaments Command for the A2 variant of its Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles.

The TACOM Life Cycle Management Command award continues FMTV A2 production orders and builds on completion of testing performance, Oshkosh Defense said Wednesday.

A2, an upgraded version of the FMTV A1P2, supports the Army’s combat missions, combat missions and logistics and supply operations, and offers 10-ton payload carrying capacity at most. The fleet consists of 16 models and associated trailers.

“For over a decade, the Oshkosh FMTV A1P2 has provided the U.S. Army with multi-purpose transportation in support of line and local haul missions, carrying Soldiers, cargo, and essential equipment,” said Pat Williams, vice president and general manager of U.S. Army and Marine Corps programs for Oshkosh Defense.

The order was made as the production of the FMTV A1P2, a late 1980s medium tactical wheeled vehicle, began to ramp down. September 2021 is the expected end date of the FMTV A1P2 production.
