Oshkosh Defense, a division of Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE:OSK), reconfirmed its support for Canadian tactical vehicle modernization programmes by announcing its intent to respond to the Medium Support Vehicle System (MSVS) Standard Military Pattern (SMP) request for proposal. Oshkosh Defense will propose a solution that leverages the company’s mission-proven vehicle platforms, advanced automotive and safety technologies and life-cycle sustainment solutions to offer the overall best value to the Canadian Government.

“We are committed to providing tactical vehicles with the performance and protection that Canadian Forces require to keep their missions moving,” said John Urias, Oshkosh Corporation executive vice president and president of Oshkosh Defense. “By developing a nationwide network of suppliers, Oshkosh Defense is well-positioned to support Canadian vehicle modernization strategy and bring measurable benefits to the Canadian economy.”

“The Oshkosh MSVS SMP solution is designed to improve the protection and performance capabilities of the Canadian Forces’ medium-payload fleet, both today and for decades to come,” said Serge Buchakjian, senior vice president and general manager of International Programs for Oshkosh Defense. “The MSVS SMP technical solution developed by Oshkosh is based on a platform with more than one billion real-world operational kilometres in missions around the globe.”

Designed to meet the Canadian Forces’ requirements for highly reliable, durable logistics vehicles for a broad range of missions, the Oshkosh MSVS SMP combines state-of-the-art drive train, advanced suspension, improved braking and superior armour protection systems.

Oshkosh Defense will serve as the prime contractor for the programme and use its Canadian network of suppliers and assembly capabilities to return value to the Canadian economy. Oshkosh programme management, industrial regional benefits (IRB) management, engineering, contract management, and purchasing support for the MSVS SMP programme will be conducted from the Oshkosh Defense Canada office in Ottawa, Ontario.
