M1078

The Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) is a series of vehicles manufactured by BAE Systems Mobility & Protection Systems (M&PS) (formerly the Tactical Vehicle Systems Division of Armor Holdings Aerospace and Defense Group, originally Tactical Vehicle Systems, LP, a subsidiary of Stewart & Stevenson Services, Inc.) of Sealy, Texas based on a common chassis, which vary by payload and mission requirements. The FMTV were derived from the Austrian military truck Steyr 12M18. The Light Medium Tactical Vehicle (LMTV) has a 2.5-ton capacity (cargo and van models). The Medium Tactical Vehicle (MTV) has a 5-ton capacity (cargo and long-wheelbase cargo with and without materiel handling equipment, tractor, van, wrecker, and dump truck models). Three truck variants and two companion trailers, with the same cube and payload capacity as their prime movers, provide air drop capability. M1078s have been deployed to Iraq with armored cabs with roof gun mounts with shields, similar to those fitted on humvees and M113s.

The cab-over FMTV replaces obsolete and maintenance-intensive 2.5 ton and 5 ton M35 and M939 series of trucks previously in the fleet and performs local and line haul, unit mobility, unit resupply, and other missions in combat, combat support and combat service support units. It is rapidly deployable worldwide and operates on primary and secondary roads, trails, and cross-country terrain, in all climatic conditions. Commonality of parts across truck chassis variants significantly reduces the logistics burden and operating and support costs. New vehicle applications are being developed to meet new requirements.

The FMTV A1 series includes a 1999 Environmental Protection Agency-certified engine, upgraded transmission, electronic data bus, an anti-lock brake system and interactive electronic technical manuals.

The FMTV shares its drivetrain with the Caiman MRAP vehicle. [1]

2009 Procurement and Protest

On February 27, 2009, the United States Army Tank Automotive and Armaments Command issued a solicitation for the upcoming round of FMTV procurement. BAE, Oshkosh Truck, and Navistar submitted proposals by the May 27 closing date.

Oshkosh won the award on August 26, Navistar and BAE were debriefed on September 2 and 3, respectively, after which time both companies protested the award.

On December 14, GAO upheld the protests.[2]

Oshkosh Defense won the award on August 26, 2009. Navistar and BAE were debriefed on September 2 and 3, respectively, after which time both companies protested the award.

On December 14, the U.S. Government Accountability Office upheld the protests, but on February 12th the United States Army again awarded the contract to Oshkosh Defense.[2][3]

Further sales

On 11 May 2010, Oshkosh reported a trucks and trailers delivery order from the Army valued at more than $410 million for the production and delivery between March and December 2011 of 2,634 FMTV trucks and 404 trailers. There were several subsequent orders in 2010, the largest being an order for 2060 FMTVs in September 2010.[4]
