Oshkosh Defense Unveils its New Mrap All-Terrain Vehicle (M-ATV) Variants to Military Leaders and Dignitaries from Around the World at Eurosatory 2014 in Paris

Oshkosh Defense will unveil its new MRAP All-Terrain Vehicle (M-ATV) variants to military leaders and dignitaries from around the world at Eurosatory 2014 in Paris, starting June 16, 2014 through June 20. Oshkosh has expanded its combat-proven M-ATV Family of Vehicles to serve a spectrum of mission requirements and needs for armed forces around the world. Expanded M-ATV Family of Vehicles: The global M-ATV Family of Vehicles includes two multi-mission models -- the M-ATV Standard and M-ATV Extended -- with many variants. The M-ATV Standard model provides response and support capabilities for a range of offensive and defensive missions in off-road environments. The M-ATV Extended model delivers increased capacity for additional troops and equipment to support a wider assortment of mission profiles, such as mounted infantry support, explosive ordnance support and command-and-control. The M-ATV Family of Vehicles includes: M-ATV Standard Base (SXB); M-ATV Standard Upgrade (SXU); M-ATV Standard Special Forces (SXF); M-ATV Extended Intervention (EXI);M-ATV Extended Engineer (EXE); and M-ATV Extended Command (EXC). All Oshkosh(R) M-ATVs deliver level of off-road performance and feature common components, such as the Oshkosh TAK-4(R) independent suspension and integrated crew protection systems. The M-ATV platform meets a wide range of protection, performance, payload and transportability requirements for peacekeeping, internal security, border security, special operations, counterinsurgency and conventional military operations. Oshkosh Defense also will have its Light Combat Tactical All-Terrain Vehicle (L-ATV) on display at Eurosatory 2014. The L-ATV meets a global need for a new level of protected mobility for a light vehicle and replaces decades-old vehicle fleets that lack protection capabilities against today's most significant threats, including improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and rocket-propelled grenades. The Oshkosh L-ATV platform was selected for the U.S. Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) program's current Engineering, Manufacturing and Development (EMD) phase and is undergoing rigorous U.S. Government testing. The JLTV program will fill the current tactical wheeled-vehicle capability gap between larger MRAP vehicles and the aging High-Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWV) fleet. The Oshkosh L-ATV uses the company's proprietary TAK-4i intelligent independent suspension system to deliver 25% improved wheel travel. Based on extensive testing that represents 85% of the Earth's terrain, the L-ATV is proven to perform at speeds 70% faster than traditional MRAP vehicles in off-road environments. The Oshkosh M-ATV SXF variant and L-ATV Base variant, in addition to an integrated product support (IPS) kiosk showcasing Oshkosh's vast support services will be showcased on-site at Eurosatory in Hall 5 at Booth D657.
