U.S. Army awards Oshkosh with $23,5M contract for recapitalized HEMTT

The defense arm of Oshkosh Corp. has received a U.S. Army order for recapitalized Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Trucks (HEMTT), in a deal worth more than $23 million.

The contract, from U.S. Army Contracting Command and announced on Tuesday, provides for process upgrades of HEMTT vehicles to the latest configuration with the same high performance and life cycle cost advantage of a new vehicle. Through recapitalization, vehicles come off the line in zero-mile, zero-hour condition.

According to a statement, work will be performed in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, with an estimated completion date of Nov. 30, 2020.


The HEMTT is extremely durable and it has the power to traverse even the most treacherous environments and the capacity to carry supplies, equipment or ammunition wherever it needs to support mission success.

The key mission of the HEMTT is to offer heavy transport capabilities for resupply of combat vehicles and weapon systems. The huge payload capacity and off-road capabilities make it a key logistics player.

The HEMTT has been in the Army’s fleet since 1981, and Oshkosh has been performing recapitalization services on these vehicles since 1995.
