Officials at the U.S. Army Tank-automotive and Armaments Command (TACOM) Life Cycle Management Command (LCMC) selected Oshkosh Defense, LLC, an Oshkosh Corp. company, for a firm fixed price requirements contract spanning up to seven ordering years for the Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) A2 variant.
The future generation FMTV A2 to be provided by Oshkosh will be comprised of 16 models and associated trailers capable of carrying payloads ranging from 3-ton to 10-ton, and performing a wide range of duties from supporting combat missions, to relief efforts, to logistics and supply operations.
