OSHKOSH, Wis., Nov. 23 (UPI) -- U.S. defense contractor Oshkosh Corp. marked a milestone following its fifth consecutive month exceeding its tactical vehicle production requirements.

Oshkosh is under a contract with the Defense Department to mass produce its mine resistant ambush protected-all terrain vehicle to support U.S. military operations in Afghanistan.

Oshkosh says its M-ATV production levels have exceeded target numbers in November marking the fifth month in a row for the manufacturer of the mobile and ruggedized tactical vehicles.

"As M-ATVs continue arriving in Afghanistan, our production operations are ramping up and Oshkosh will soon reach the planned 1,000 vehicles per month," Robert Bohn, Oshkosh chairman and chief executive officer, said in a statement.

"Our decades of proven experience, a highly skilled workforce and available production capacity in our facilities ensure we will meet our customer's needs for this program."
