OSHKOSH, Wis., 26 June 2009. Oshkosh Defense, a division of Oshkosh Corp., won a delivery order from the U.S. Army TACOM Life Cycle Management Command (LCMC) to supply more than 30 next-generation Oshkosh Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Trucks (HEMTT) to the U.S. Army Reserve.

The delivery order, issued under the Family of Heavy Tactical Vehicles (FHTV) contract, is valued at more than $9 million. The variant that will be produced under the delivery order is the M1120A4 Load Handling System (LHS).

This next-generation HEMTT A4 incorporates an air-conditioned and armor-ready cab, more powerful drivetrain, improved suspension, safety improvements, and other enhancements.

The vehicles are long-term armor strategy (LTAS)-compliant and come off the assembly line fitted with upgraded suspensions and integral (A kit) armor. They also will be ready to receive an add-on (B kit) armor appliqué that can be quickly and easily installed in the field.

The HEMTT's 13-ton payload capacity and off-road capabilities make it the backbone of the U.S. Army's logistics fleet.
