The vehicles, produced by Oshkosh Defense, are part of an initiative by the U.S. military to replace vehicles commonly known as hummers.

Work under the deal with O'Gara-Hess & Eisenhardt, based in Fairfield, Ohio, will be funded on an order-by-order basis, as will the work sites.

The Defense Department projects O'Gara-Hess & Eisenhardt will complete work under the contract by December 2023.
