Oshkosh Defense, a division of Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE: OSK), is unveiling a new MRAP All-Terrain Vehicle (M-ATV) platform this week at CANSEC 2014, defense exhibition in Canada. The new platform, named M-ATV Light, offers the performance characteristics of the combat-proven M-ATV in a more compact, transportable design to support the unique requirements of Special Operations and a spectrum of other missions.
The Oshkosh Defense® MRAP All-Terrain Vehicle (M-ATV) Light (LXT) platform delivers a smaller footprint with the performance to maintain and enforce security levels in predominantly off-road operations.
“The Oshkosh M-ATV Light is an ideal vehicle to maintain and enforce security levels in predominantly off-road environments that require speed, agility and air transportability,” said U.S. Army Major General (retired), John Urias, Oshkosh Corporation executive vice president and president of Oshkosh Defense. “We are delighted to debut the M-ATV Light in Ottawa at CANSEC 2014 as we demonstrate our continued support of the Canadian Government’s long-term fleet modernization and economic strategies.”
