Delivery of the new trucks begins this year, according to Itzik Levy, deputy chief of purchasing for ground systems. The last truck is to arrive by mid-2018.

The Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) is a series of vehicles, based on a common chassis, that vary by payload and mission requirements.

Oshkosh’s current FMTV A1P2 portfolio comprises 17 models designed to carry payload of 2.5 to 10 tons and support combat missions, relief efforts, logistics and supply operations.

Oshkosh FMTV is equipped with technologies designed for battlefield and homeland security missions as well as features a parts commonality of more than 80 percent, which aids the maintenance, training and sustainment of Army, Army Reserves, National Guard and U.S. Air Force vehicles.
