Oshkosh Corp has been awarded $235.2 million from the U.S. Army Tank-Automotive and Armaments Command (TACOM) to recapitalize vehicles in the Army’s Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Trucks (HEMTT) and Palletized Load System (PLS) fleets.
The recapitalization process upgrades vehicles to the latest configuration and quickly returns them to operation with the same high performance and life cycle cost advantage of a new vehicle. Through recapitalization, vehicles come off the line in zero-mile, zero-hour condition.
Under the contract, Oshkosh will recapitalize 410 vehicles as well as manufacture 680 new PLS trailers. Deliveries of the units will begin in Fiscal Year 2019.
All recapitalization work will be completed in Oshkosh, WI.
The primary use of the vehicles is for supply transport and distribution.
