Oshkosh to Continue US Army FHTV Fleet Modernisation

Initial Order Under Three-Year Contract Extension Covers 353 Vehicles at $146.8 Million

Oshkosh Defense has been awarded a $146.8 million (€121.8 million) three-year contract extension to the Family of Heavy Tactical Vehicles (FHTV) IV contract, which the company originally won in 2015.

Under the extension, Oshkosh will provide new and recapitalised Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Trucks (HEMTT), Palletized Load System (PLS) trucks and trailers, and Heavy Equipment Transporters (HET). The initial delivery orders call for a total of 353 new and recapitalised vehicles.

A key aspect of the FHTV design is its capacity to support a multitude of roles; the flexible architecture also accommodates additional capabilities such as Condition Based Maintenance (CBM), Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), autonomy, on-board power, and other proven technologies. Since commencing production, the company has produced over 35,800 HEMTTs, 8,500 PLS and 4,600 HETs, while also recapitalising over 14,000 HEMTTs, 3,500 PLS and 1,000 HETs.
