Oshkosh Defense will provide the US Marines with more than 5,750 upgrade kits for the medium tactical vehicle replacement (MTVR).

Under the $44m contract, the company will deliver more than 950 weapons-mount kits for the installation of motorised marine corps transparent armour gun shields (MCTAGS), which are designed to replace the gunner protection kits on up-armoured vehicles.

Oshkosh will also supply 2,000 door-upgrade kits, which will make the doors common with those on MTVRs by using the reducible-height armour kits.

In addition, the company will deliver MTVR troop carrier upgrades, which include 800 dual-ladder kits, more than 1,000 seatbelt kits to support the carrier’s crew and more than 1,000 lift-point kits for enhanced transportability.

The contract has options that, if exercised, could bring the value of the contract up to $89m.

The contract has been awarded by the US Marine Corps Systems Command, for which the production work and deliveries are expected to be complete in September 2010.
