"It's never been more important for troops to have vehicles that effectively balance protection, payload, modularity and mobility to carry out missions in any environment or threat level," said U.S. Army Major General (Retired) John M. Urias, executive vice president of Oshkosh Corporation and president of Oshkosh Defense.

"The M-ATV 6x6 Technology Demonstrator was developed to transport a full squad with their required mission equipment and provide more power on the battlefield - all while maintaining MRAP level protection and off-road mobility."
The Oshkosh M-ATV 6x6 Technology Demonstrator is multi-mission ready, allowing crews - whose roles may rapidly change - to have the right vehicle to perform that mission. The combined benefits from the TAK-4(R) independent suspension and the M-ATV 6x6's all wheel steer enables maneuverability across any type of terrain on the modern battlefield.

The Oshkosh M-ATV is a family of Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicle developed by the Oshkosh Corporation of Oshkosh, Wisconsin for the MRAP All Terrain Vehicle (M-ATV) program.

The Oshkosh M-ATV is designed to meet the U.S. Armed Services’ urgent need requirement for a well-protected vehicle than can thrive in operations on Afghanistan’s rugged and mountainous off-road terrain. In addition to meeting these mobility demands, the Oshkosh M-ATV provides the superior crew protection that military forces need by incorporating an armor system from Plasan North America, which developed the armor system in use on more than 5,000 current MRAP vehicles and for the Armored Cab Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacements (MTVR) in Iraq and Afghanistan.
