(NSI News Source Info) TORONTO, Canada - September 5, 2012: Oshkosh Corp., Oshkosh, Wis., is being awarded $67,540,517 for fixed-price delivery order #0007 under previously awarded indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract (M67854-12-D-0209).  

This delivery order is issued for the purchase of 207 Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacement (MTVR) production cargo vehicles for the Marine Corps, 60 MTVR cargo vehicles for the Navy Seabees, Nonrecurring Engineering, and Federal Retail Excise Tax for 299 cargo vehicles.  

Work will be performed in Oshkosh, Wis., and is expected to be completed by Aug. 29, 2014.  Contract funds in the amount of $37,594,595 will expire at the end of the current fiscal year.  The Marine Corps System Command, Quantico, Va., is the contracting activity.  

 Built to go over even the roughest terrains and through the most hazardous environments, the Oshkosh® Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacement (MTVR) is a high-performance, extremely durable, all-terrain vehicle military personnel can rely on. The MTVR easily carries 15 tons over the highway and up to 7 tons off-road. And with advanced technologies like TAK-4® independent suspension and the Command Zone™ integrated control and diagnostics system, the MTVR has the brawn and the brains to take on any obstacle that attempts to impede the mission.

With the ability to operate in the most extreme conditions, the Oshkosh MTVR provides the durability, reliability and versatility the armed forces need. And with the addition of an all-aluminum cab, a strict anti-corrosion program and total life-cycle support, the MTVR will continue to perform on any mission, every time – wherever that mission is.
