added an armored vehicle named Bushmaster to its offering of combat trucks.

Oshkosh Truck will manufacture and market the Bushmaster armored vehicle, under a licensing agreement with the vehicle's developer, ADI of Australia. The vehicle is mine-blast resistant due to its V-shaped hull, and its armor provides improvised explosive device and ballistic protection to its occupants, the company said.

Oshkosh will supply the Bushmaster for North American customers as well as countries eligible for foreign military sales.

"The Bushmaster provides Oshkosh Truck with an even greater ability to support our customer through a wider spectrum of conflict," the company said.
