Oshkosh Defense, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Oshkosh Corporation, announced today that the National Advanced Mobility Consortium (NAMC) has selected Oshkosh Defense to participate in the U.S. Army’s Common Tactical Truck (CTT) prototype Other Transaction Authority. Oshkosh Defense designed six CTT variants, including a Load Handling System (LHS), Off-Road Tractor, Line Haul Tractor, Cargo, Wrecker, and Tanker. As part of the prototype award, Oshkosh Defense will build and deliver three variants to the U.S. Army for test and evaluation. Oshkosh Defense will leverage the proven, battle-tested Family of Heavy Tactical Vehicles (FHTV) platform for the CTT prototypes, ultimately providing a modernized version of the already capable FHTV. The FHTV’s flexible architecture allows it to support a multitude of missions with the ability to scale up or down with minimal change to the vehicle.
“As the U.S. Army’s premier provider of heavy, medium, and light tactical wheeled vehicle fleets, Oshkosh is uniquely qualified to inform the CTT requirements. We look forward to partnering with the U.S. Army to refine their CTT desired capabilities and ensure our Soldiers receive the capability they need and deserve.We’ve been the U.S. Army’s trusted provider of tactical wheeled vehicles for nearly 50 years. We understand the complexities of the battlefield and the demands that combat can impose on the vehicle fleet. No other manufacturer can say that. That knowledge, combined with our engineering prowess positions us to provide the most capable and cost-effective CTT,” said Pat Williams, Chief Programs Officer for Oshkosh Defense.
For decades, Oshkosh Defense has partnered with the U.S. Military to develop, test, and evolve advanced military and commercial technologies and integrate them onto the FHTV. The Oshkosh Defense CTT variants offer these technologies to achieve the U.S. Army’s desired capabilities of active safety, fuel demand reduction, autonomy, mission flexibility, prognostics, commonality, and superior survivability. Oshkosh Defense will also leverage the resources, expertise, and technologies of the entire Oshkosh Corporation family of companies and tailor them for stringent military applications. With every heavy tactical vehicle Oshkosh Defense manufacture, the company transform the face of mission-critical equipment transportation and combat support for the men and women who serve.
