 (NSI News Source Info) TORONTO, Canada - February 16, 2012:  The Oshkosh Defense® M-ATV tactical ambulance will be on display Feb. 20-23 in booth B50 at the International Armoured Vehicles Conference in Farnborough, United Kingdom. Oshkosh Defense, a division of Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE:OSK), designed the M-ATV tactical ambulance to meet an international need for a more protected battlefield ambulance with advanced off-road capabilities.
The vehicle is the latest variant within the Oshkosh MRAP All-Terrain Vehicle (M-ATV) family. More than 8,100 life-saving M-ATVs are currently fielded in Afghanistan.

“We’re bringing our M-ATV tactical ambulance to the International Armoured Vehicles Conference to showcase the modularity of the M-ATV platform and breadth of the family of vehicles,” said Serge Buchakjian, senior vice president and general manager of International Programs for Oshkosh Defense. “The M-ATV is a proven solution for armed forces looking to modernize their fleets with increased off-road mobility and protection across a variety of missions.”

The Oshkosh M-ATV tactical ambulance is designed to help military medics reach and treat casualties in hostile environments across rugged terrain. Quick and easy stretcher loading enables prompt extraction of patients, and the best-in-class Oshkosh TAK-4® independent suspension system can cover tougher terrain at higher speeds than current fleets.

A fully functional ambulance, the M-ATV tactical ambulance has mounting provisions that provide options for a complete suite of medical equipment. The vehicle is available in two configurations that provide ample room to treat two patients on stretchers or four ambulatory patients.

The tactical ambulance is the newest configuration in the M-ATV family of vehicles, which is designed to maximize parts commonality and simplify maintenance and support.
