Oshkosh has released its prototype for Canada's tactical armoured patrol vehicle (TAPV) programme, and its plans for medium support vehicle system (MSVS) programmes.

Oshkosh and General Dynamics Land Systems-Canada will jointly work on the TAPV programme to replace the Canadian force's armoured patrol vehicle (APV) and the Coyote reconnaissance vehicle.

The company will work with subsidiary London Machinery (LMI) to utilise its new facility to perform the complete range of extensive systems integration and testing support for the vehicles.

The MSVS programme is intended to replace Canada's medium logistics vehicles, wheeled (MLVW) fleet.

Both the programmes will enhance the capabilities of the Canadian Forces with protected, high-performance vehicle fleets.

Oshkosh will be the prime contractor for both programmes with GD providing in-country sustainment support and LMI providing in-country manufacturing capabilities for the programmes.
