Oshkosh Defense announced the U.S. Army Contracting Command awarded it delivery orders totaling $346.4 million to modernize vehicles in the U.S. Army and U.S. Army Reserve Heavy Tactical fleets.
Under the award, Oshkosh will recapitalize Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Trucks and Palletized Load System trucks as well as manufacture new PLS trailers.
Recapitalized vehicles are rebuilt with the latest technology and safety upgrades and quickly returned to field operations with the same warranty and life cycle cost advantages of a new vehicle.
