A key aspect of the FHTV’s design is its capacity to support a multitude of roles. The FHTV’s flexible architecture also accommodates additional capabilities such as Condition Based Maintenance (CBM), Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), autonomy, on-board power, and other proven technologies.

Oshkosh Defense was initially awarded the FHTV IV contract in 2015. Since the start of FHTV production, the company has produced over 35,800 HEMTTs, 8,500 PLS vehicles, and 4,600 HETs while also recapitalizing over 14,000 HEMTTs, 3,500 PLS vehicles, and 1,000 HETs.
