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.

The largest of those orders is a mine-resistant truck designed to replace the Humvee in the rough Afghan terrain.
