Oshkosh Defense receives USD 27.3 Mln Order for Medium Equipment Trailers

Oshkosh Defense, LLC, an Oshkosh Corporation business, announced today that the U.S. Army Contracting Command – Detroit Arsenal (ACC-DTA) placed a $27.3 million order for 57 Medium Equipment Trailers (MET). Oshkosh will execute the order with partner Broshuis B.V.

The MET six-axle drop deck trailer is part of the Oshkosh family of trailers and is interoperable with the Oshkosh Enhanced Heavy Equipment Transporter System (EHETS) M1300 tractor.

Combined with the EHETS M1300 tractor, the MET can transport combat vehicles weighing up to 60 tons and meet European Highway Road Network Accessibility (RNA) requirements for payloads up to 45 tons. The 70-foot-long trailer is capable of navigating under four-meter overpasses and the hydraulically adjustable suspension allows it to be lowered or raised for obstacle clearance and fording water crossings.

The primary mission of the MET is to load, secure, and transport Bradley Fighting Vehicles (BFV), Armored Multi-Purpose Vehicles (AMPV), Paladin, and Field Artillery Ammunition Support Vehicles (FAASV).

Oshkosh was awarded the five-year Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) MET production contract in November 2023.
