Oshkosh Defense plans to leverage current vehicle fleets in its responses for the TAPV and MSVS programs. Shown is its Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacement 4x4 short-bed cargo truck.

Oshkosh Defense and General Dynamics Land Systems-Canada have agreed to jointly pursue two Canadian Department of National Defence wheeled vehicle programs—the Tactical Armored Patrol Vehicle (TAPV) and the Standard Military Pattern (SMP) portion of the Medium Support Vehicle System (MSVS). The TAPV program will replace the Armored Patrol Vehicle and the Coyote reconnaissance vehicle, and the MSVS program will replace the Medium Logistics truck fleet. Oshkosh Defense will serve as the prime contractor and leverage current vehicle fleets in its responses for the programs. GDLS-Canada will provide systems integration and testing support for the vehicle as well as extensive logistics, training, technical manuals, and spare parts management to Canadian requirements.
