Oshkosh updating US Army heavy tactical vehicles

21 April 2017

Oshkosh Defense has received various delivery orders for hundreds of trucks under the US Army's Family of Heavy Tactical Vehicles (FHTV) programme, the company announced on 18 April.

The awards total USD258 million and cover recapitalisation for 670 of Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Trucks (HEMTT) and Palletized Load Systems (PLS) platforms, as well as 356 trailers.

Oshkosh will bring the army's fleet of HEMTTs and PLSs "to the same zero-mile, zero-hour condition as new production vehicles", a company spokesperson told Jane's on 20 April. The vehicles will be updated to the "latest model configuration", such as the HEMTT A4, and deliveries are to begin in December of 2017, the company said.
