Oshkosh has been awarded a firm-fixed-price contract by the US Army Contracting Command to supply Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) All-Terrain vehicles (M-ATV) for UAE.

The $27.11m award will provide for the modification of an existing contract for 50 MRAP-ATVs and will include basic issue items and kits in support of US foreign military sales.

The M-ATV is specifically designed to deliver the survivability and off-road mobility required for harsh environments.

Work will be carried out at the company’s facility in Wisconsin, US, with an estimated completion date of 31 December 2011.
