Oshkosh Defense will feature its MRAP All-Terrain Vehicle (M-ATV) tactical ambulance at the AUSA's Army Medical Exposition taking place in San Antonio, Texas.
The M-ATV tactical ambulance offers an enhanced design that exceeds the military's original M-ATV ambulance survivability requirements and delivers exceptional off-road mobility so military medics can reach and care for injured personnel in challenging operating environments.
"The M-ATV tactical ambulance is the lightest and most mobile MRAP ambulance available to Warfighters today, and it delivers MRAP-level protection mirroring the protection on M-ATVs now equipped with underbody improvement kits to keep them safe on the battlefield," said Ken Juergens, vice president and general manager of Joint Programs for Oshkosh Defense.
"As we have proved since we started work on the M-ATV program, Oshkosh has the production capabilities to deliver this vehicle in response to urgent needs in the field."
