OSHKOSH DEFENSE RCV SELECTED FOR PLATFORM PROTOTYPE DESIGN & BUILD​



OSHKOSH, WI. (September 28, 2023) — Oshkosh Defense, LLC, an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE: OSK) company, announced today that it was selected by the U.S. Army, through the Ground Vehicle Systems Other Transaction Agreement (GVS OTA), to participate in Phase I, Platform Prototype Design and Build, of the Robotic Combat Vehicle (RCV) program.


Leveraging an elite team of Oshkosh Defense, Pratt Miller Defense, and QinetiQ, Oshkosh submitted its response to the Army’s Request for Prototype Proposal in May 2023.


“We are proud to be selected to participate in Phase I of the RCV program,” said Pat Williams, chief programs officer for Oshkosh Defense. “We offer a mature and proven solution, with demonstrated durability and flexibility to incorporate new technologies, to meet the demands of an evolving battlefield.”


The tracked, autonomous vehicles will support varying payloads and advanced weapons systems through scalable, mission-focused modularity. Oshkosh will showcase the RCV capabilities from October 9 – 11 in their booth (#739) at the 2023 AUSA Annual Meeting and Exposition. Earlier this year, Oshkosh displayed the platform’s essential versatility during the 2023 AUSA Global Force Symposium.


“Our RCV is informed by years of customer feedback and tailored to meet the needs of the Soldier,” Williams continued. “We look forward to continuing our partnership with the Army to deliver a soldier-centered, purpose-built solution.”


Oshkosh will deliver two platform prototypes for testing in August 2024. The Army has announced the intent to select one vendor for Phase II, Full-System Prototype Design and Build, in FY24.

OSHKOSH DEFENSE RECEIVES JLTV ORDER FOR $208 MILLION


OSHKOSH, WI. (November 6, 2023) — Oshkosh Defense, LLC, announced that the U.S. Army Contracting Command – Detroit Arsenal placed an order for Oshkosh Defense Joint Light Tactical Vehicles (JLTV), trailers (JLTV-T), and associated packaged and installed kits.


The order is valued at $208 million and includes JLTVs for the U.S. Army, U.S. Marine Corps and U.S. Air Force.


The JLTV was designed to replace the aging uparmored HMMWV fleet with a vehicle providing better protection, mobility and a greater payload capacity. The Oshkosh Defense JLTV filled that critical capability with a purpose-built modular design that is easily configured to meet mission needs including weapon systems, protection kits, communications, and other critical equipment. It can accommodate more than 100 different mission package configurations without sacrificing mobility, protection, or transportability.


Since winning the initial JLTV contract in 2015, Oshkosh Defense has received orders for over 23,000 JLTVs for the U.S. Armed Forces and NATO, Allied and Collation partners. Throughout the program, Oshkosh Defense focused on continuous improvement and innovation, as reflected by more than 125 patents and applications that Oshkosh holds associated with the JLTV family of vehicles and related technologies.


“We spent the last decade committed to learning, improving processes, establishing a robust supply chain, as well as a world-class team of experts to design and produce the most reliable light tactical vehicle in the industry,” said George Mansfield, vice president and general manager of defense programs at Oshkosh Defense. “We are extremely proud of our execution of the JLTV program, including its reputation as a model procurement project due to consistent on-schedule and under budget production.”


As a globally recognized leader in the design and production of military vehicle systems, Oshkosh Defense is committed to supporting NATO allies looking to modernize their Armed Forces and protect their soldiers. Oshkosh Defense has received JLTV orders or commitments from eight international customers and intends to continue making the proven Oshkosh JLTV available through Direct Commercial Sales (DCS).


“Oshkosh Defense has partnered with the U.S. Military for decades to develop, test, and evolve advanced military technologies. We look forward to further supporting the U.S. Army in their modernization efforts including the Robotic Combat Vehicle, Stryker Medium Caliber Weapon System (MCWS), and future programs,” concluded Mansfield.


Oshkosh Defense plans to produce JLTVs into Q1FY2025. The Oshkosh Defense Aftermarket team will continue to service and support Oshkosh-built JLTVs for years to come.

ENHANCED CAPABILITES COMING FOR THE OSHKOSH HET A1


OSHKOSH, WI. — The U.S. Army Contracting Command – Detroit Arsenal (ACC-DTA) recently awarded Oshkosh Defense the contract for modification kits to update current Heavy Equipment Transporter (HET) A1 tractors with enhanced capabilities to meet European road permissions at required payloads. With these kits, the HET A1 will be converted to the Enhanced Heavy Equipment Transporter System (EHETS) tractor.


The EHETS tractor and trailer system combined are designed to provide line haul, local haul, and maintenance evacuation of the heaviest mission-critical equipment including tanks, armored vehicles, and recovery vehicles. The system also supports the self-load and unload of disabled cargo as necessary for evacuation purposes.


Constantly evolving military capabilities require heavy tactical vehicles that keep pace with the demands of a changing battlefield.


“We are honored that the U.S. Army continues to call on us to facilitate integration of new capabilities into combat formations,” said Pat Williams, chief programs officer at Oshkosh Defense. “The EHET is another example of the adaptability of the Oshkosh Family of Heavy Tactical Vehicles to seamlessly integrate advanced capabilities onto the existing fleet.”
