OSHKOSH, Wis., Jan. 26 (UPI) -- The U.S. Army has contracted Oshkosh to provide repair kits and other spare parts to support armored all-terrain vehicles widely deployed in combat theaters.

Wisconsin-based Oshkosh is the prime contractor for the Defense Department's Mine Resistant Ambush Protect-All Terrain Vehicle program. Monday Oshkosh received an order from the Army Tank Automotive and Armaments Command Life Cycle Management Command to deliver M-ATV repair kits.

Under the $325 million deal, Oshkosh will provide the Army with needed spare parts for the M-ATVs deployed in Afghanistan to help ensure the mission critical armored vehicles remain ready to support ongoing operations.

"These M-ATV spare parts and repair kits are being produced to ensure they are available to our Armed Forces as operations require," Robert Bohn, Oshkosh chairman and chief executive officer, said in a statement.

"We have a continued commitment to our warfighters to keep a robust aftermarket parts support program running parallel to the needs in the field."
