The Army Tank-Automotive and Armaments Command (TACOM) Life Cycle Management Command (LCMC) has awarded Oshkosh Defense a $141 Million order for 414 Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles A2 (FMTV A2).

The agreement also calls for the production of 56 FMTV trailers. The order serves increased force protection, greater payload capacity, superior off-road mobility, enhanced engine power, and an upgraded electrical system.

“Since we were awarded the FMTV A2 production contract in 2018, we’ve worked closely with the U.S. Army to refine the platform and add additional capabilities,” Oshkosh Defense Chief Program Officer Pat Williams said. “We’re confident that we are delivering the best performing medium tactical vehicle in the world.”

Oshkosh Defense has received orders for 1,412 FMTV A2s and 800 FMTV trailers for a total order value of $627 million to date, officials noted, adding the company is a global leader in the design, production, and sustainment of best-in-class military vehicles, technology solutions, and mobility systems, setting the industry standard for sustaining fleet readiness.

The advanced capabilities provided by the FMTV A2 enable the Army to provide support in executing a wide range of duties ranging from combat missions and logistics operations to aid in relief efforts.
