The US Army has awarded Oshkosh Defense a USD13.9 million contract for support services for the MRAP All-Terrain Vehicle (M-ATV) Family of vehicles.

The Oshkosh Defense® MRAP All-Terrain Vehicle (M-ATV) Family of Vehicles features an array of vehicle configurations for a wide range of mission requirements, force structures and threats. Whether a fleet has narrowly defined missions or expansive tactical demands, forces can be equipped with the right M-ATV variants to meet those specific needs while benefitting from a common platform and components.

The contract covers engineering support services for the M-ATV in support of US Army.

While some original MRAP vehicles may weigh nearly 60,000 pounds, the M-ATV weighs about 25,000 pounds, including standard equipment and fuel.

M-ATVs feature an independent suspension and shorter wheel base that make it more adaptable to rocky hills. Their V-shaped hulls protect up to four passengers and a gunner from underbelly blasts.
