The US Army has ordered a new generation tactical vehicle FMTV A2 from Oshkosh Defense.
The cost of the agreement, which includes the production of 541 vehicles, is 152 million US Dollars.
The vehicle family, which is planned to start production in September, is the new generation of the FMTV A1P2 family, which has been used by the American army since 1988.
Next-generation vehicles will have more armor protection and will be compatible with the army’s new modernization programs.
The FMTV A2 vehicle family fleet consists of 16 models and trailers that can carry payloads from 3 to 10 tons and perform a wide variety of tasks, from supporting combat missions to relief work, logistics and supply operations.
