Oshkosh receives preliminary M-ATV contract


The US Oshkosh Corporation says it has been awarded an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract with the US Army Tank-automotive and Armaments Command (TACOM) for the purchase of three additional production-ready Oshkosh MRAP All Terrain Vehicles (M-ATV) for further military testing. 

The contract is the same one from which the government could now award Oshkosh full production of an anticipated 2,080 – 10,000 M-ATVs for production later this year.

The contract was awarded following the completion of successful military testing on two production-ready Oshkosh M-ATVs that were delivered to Aberdeen Proving Grounds in February and met the government’s initial design requirements.
“As confirmed by this announcement, the Oshkosh M-ATV is a very capable vehicle to take our troops wherever the mission requires,” said Robert Bohn, Oshkosh Corporation chairman and chief executive officer.

“The military needs a vehicle that delivers superior crew protection and thrives in rugged off-road terrain, and our vehicle is designed for exactly that.”
