Oshkosh Corp. gets another big order for Marine transport trucks
The Marines have told the Oshkosh Corporation to build 400 more heavy supply trucks to be used in Afghanistan.
That brings the total order to 1,300 vehicles - which are designed to carry fuel, heavy equipment, and other supplies to Marines in the field. The first such vehicles arrived in Afghanistan last September.
Today's new order will net $158 million for Oshkosh - which has gotten $4 billion in total military business over the last year.
