Oshkosh to modify MRAP military vehicles


OSHKOSH, Wis. (WSAU) -- Oshkosh Truck’s military vehicles division may have taken a big cut due to decreased orders after Afghanistan and Iraq equipment, but they are still getting some purchase orders from the U.S. government.

Oshkosh Defense has been awarded a contract to reset and upgrade up to 800 Mine Resistant Ambush Protected, or MRAP, all terrain vehicles. The work will be done at the Oshkosh facility between now and the end of 2015.

Nearly 39-million dollars of the 45-million dollar deal will come from Army operations and maintenance funds.
