The FMTV A2 is a modernized version of the FMTV A1P2, offering increased force protection, greater payload capacity, superior off-road mobility, enhanced engine power, and an upgraded electrical system. These advanced capabilities allow the FMTV A2 to support a wide range of duties, from combat missions and logistics operations to aiding in relief efforts. With today’s announced order, Oshkosh Defense has received orders for 1,412 FMTV A2s and 800 FMTV trailers for a total order value of $627 Million to date.
“Since we were awarded the FMTV A2 production contract in 2018, we’ve worked closely with the U.S. Army to refine the platform and add additional capabilities. We’re confident that we are delivering the best performing medium tactical vehicle in the world,” said Pat Williams, Chief Program Officer for Oshkosh Defense.
The Oshkosh Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) have been trusted to move troops and supplies, recover vehicles and weapon systems, or haul equipment wherever the mission requires. As missions evolve, so should the vehicles built to support those missions. Today’s mission requires the Oshkosh Defense FMTV A2, available in a complete range of mission specific variants including 5-ton Tractor, 8.8-ton LHS, Cargo 4×4 and 6×6, 10-ton Dump and 5-ton Wrecker. The FMTV A2 offers increased troop protection, while carrying additional payload and providing better ride quality. Crew-protecting armor and advanced technologies work in concert to provide the capability, versatility, mobility and protection to move troops and supplies, recover vehicles and weapon systems or haul equipment wherever the mission requires.
