Oshkosh Defense, a division of Oshkosh Corporation, announced its first ever order for vehicles to the Iraqi Armed Forces. The inaugural order is for 60 Heavy Equipment Transporter Systems (HETS), which includes the Oshkosh(r) HET vehicle and a trailer. Oshkosh also will provide operator training, spare parts and manuals.

"Oshkosh Defense is committed to helping international militaries become more independent by supplying vehicles that increase their mission and logistics support capabilities," said Ron Ziebell, Oshkosh Defense vice president and general manager, International Programs. "We look forward to working with the Iraqi Armed Forces as they strive to improve security within the region."

The Oshkosh HET is designed to rapidly transport M1A1 Main Battle tanks, armored vehicles and self-propelled guns, as well as a six-person crew, so the vehicles and soldiers arrive in mission-ready condition.

The contract, valued at more than $40 million, was received through the U.S. Army TACOM Life Cycle Management Command (LCMC). Work under the contract is expected to be completed in May 2011.

The HET is part of the company's line of international vehicles and technologies designed to meet a variety of logistical and operational needs around the world.
