U.S. Army Tank-automotive and Armaments Command Life Cycle Management Command (TACOM LCMC) awarded Oshkosh Corp. an additional $189 million to deliver an additional 352 MRAP All Terrain Vehicles (M-ATV) to the U.S. Armed Forces by March. This is the third award under the delivery order first awarded in June. To date, TACOM LCMC has ordered a total of 4296 M-ATVs from Oshkosh, totaling $2.3 billion. To meet the delivery deadline, production will ramp up to 1000 vehicles per month in December and will continue at that level through the end of March. TACOM LCMC also awarded Oshkosh Defense a contract for the U.S. Army’s Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) rebuy program. The FMTV rebuy program is a five-year requirements contract award for the production of up to 23,000 vehicles and trailers as well as support services and engineering. The FMTV is a series of up to 23 variant and 17 different models ranging from 2.5- to 5-ton (2.3- to 4.5-t) payloads. The contract’s first delivery order is valued at $280.9 million for the production and delivery of 2568 trucks and trailers. Initial test vehicle deliveries are planned for mid-2010, followed by production vehicle deliveries later in the year.
