Oshkosh Defense has secured a three-year extension to the Family of Heavy Tactical Vehicles (FHTV IV) contract from the US Army Contracting Command.

The company will deliver new and recapitalised Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Trucks (HEMTT), Palletized Load System (PLS) trucks and trailers, and Heavy Equipment Transporters (HET) during the extension period.

Additionally, Oshkosh Defense received an initial delivery order worth $146.8m to supply a total of 353 new and recapitalised vehicles.

Oshkosh Defense vice-president and US Army and Marine Corps Programs general manager Pat Williams said: “For decades, we’ve worked closely with the US Army to modernise the FHTV fleet, and we are honoured that they’ve called on us to continue to provide our Soldiers with these mission-critical vehicles.

“We look forward to working with the US Army to further modernise the FHTV fleet in support of current and future missions.”

The company was first awarded the FHTV IV contract in 2015.

Oshkosh Defense has delivered more than 35,800 HEMTTs, 8,500 PLS vehicles, and 4,600 HETs since the commencement of FHTV production. It also recapitalised around 14,000 HEMTTs, 3,500 PLS vehicles, and 1,000 HETs in the same period.

A wholly owned subsidiary of Oshkosh Corporation, Oshkosh Defense focuses on manufacturing military vehicles and mobility systems.

Last month, Oshkosh Defense and BAE Systems were down-selected to provide prototypes for the US Army’s Cold Weather All-Terrain Vehicle (CATV) programme.

The CATV programme seeks to replace the ageing Small Unit Support Vehicles (SUSVs).
