Oshkosh brings next generation of vehicles at Dubai Air Show
"Due to Oshkosh's growing presence in the region and in the UAE it was very important for us to participate in Dubai Airshow."
Oshkosh Defense, an Oshkosh Corporation company, exhibited at the Dubai Airshow 2015 a full range of leading-edge military, security and airport fire fighting vehicles to serve customers throughout the Middle East Region, including the highly transportable Light Combat Tactical All-Terrain Vehicle (L-ATV), which was recently selected by the US Army and Marine Corps to replace aging up-armored HMMWVs.
"Due to Oshkosh's growing presence in the region and in the UAE it was very important for us to participate in Dubai Airshow. So many of our customers are based here and we cater to our customers from North Africa and over all region from this platform. It also allows us to network closely with our clients who wish to see us in events like this," said Bill Mooney, regional vice-president of Middle East and North Africa for Oshkosh Defense.
Oshkosh has been supporting militaries in the Middle East for nearly 30 years and has a well-established presence with programme offices in the UAE and Saudi Arabia. Countries throughout the region, including the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan, Iraq and Oman, rely on Oshkosh vehicles every day for tactical and logistical operations.
Today's conflicts demand military vehicles with the protection, mobility and transportability to serve a full range of missions and unpredictable environments. The Oshkosh L-ATV combines proven automotive technologies, Mine Resistant Ambush Protected-level protection and extreme mobility in a light-weight, highly-transportable profile. The L-ATV offers armed forces around the globe next-generation capabilities that no other vehicle can match.
"As future battlefields generate new, asymmetrical threats, troops will require a scalable, protected all-terrain vehicle to perform their missions - wherever they may be," said Mooney. "The Oshkosh L-ATV provides an entirely new generation of light vehicles with unprecedented levels of off-road mobility, transportability and survivability."
