Oshkosh worked closely with military medical professionals on the vehicle’s design and interior layout. The fully functional ambulance will help military medics reach and treat casualties in hostile environments across rugged terrain. It allows for prompt extraction and treatment of patients when every moment counts, and has mounting provisions that provide options for a complete suite of medical equipment. The vehicle is available in two configurations that provide ample room to treat two patients on stretchers or four ambulatory patients.
