Oshkosh Defense teamed with Plasan North America to provide an advanced armor solution for the M-ATV.

Oshkosh Corp. has received an additional $175 million order from the U.S. Army Tank-automotive and Armaments Command Life Cycle Management Command (TACOM LCMC) to deliver 400 MRAP All Terrain Vehicles (M-ATVs). As of mid-December, Oshkosh had received six awards valued at $3.3 billion to deliver a total of 6619 M-ATVs. (Visit www.sae.org/mags/sohe/6941 for more information on an earlier contract.) The company says that it is exceeding the accelerated delivery schedule with “unprecedented production efforts” at its manufacturing facilities; Oshkosh has ramped up production to achieve 1000 vehicles per month in December. This new award will extend production into May.
