The Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) is a family of diesel powered U.S. Army supply trucks in the 2.5 to 5 ton payload class. The FMTV consists of the Light Medium Tactical Vehicle (LMTV) and the Medium Tactical Vehicle (MTV). The trucks are manufactured by Oshkosh Corporation. A five-year contract was awarded to Oshkosh Trucks in August 2009, unseating incumbent FMTV producers BAE Systems and Navistar Defense. The FMTV Family of Vehicles has 80% part commonality.
The Medium Tactical Vehicle (MTV) is a family of 6-wheel (6x6) diesel powered trucks with a 330 hp Caterpillar C7 6 cylinder engine. The MTV has a 5 ton payload capacity (dump truck has 10 ton payload), and consists of the M1083 MTV Cargo, M1084 MTV Cargo MHE, M1085 MTV Cargo Long Wheel Base (LWB), M1086 MTV Cargo MHE LWB, M1087 MTV Expansible Van, M1088 MTV Tractor, M1089 MTV Wrecker, M1148 MTV Load Handling System (LHS), and M1157 MTV 10 Ton Dump Truck models. MTV trailers include the 5 ton payload M1095 and the M1147 LHS Trailer. Subvariants of the MTV provide an air drop capability for contingency and rapid deployment operations. Commonality between variants significantly reduces operation and maintenance costs.
