OSHKOSH (WLUK) -- The military has awarded Oshkosh Defense a $165 million contract to refurbish 478 Army vehicles.

The order will have Oshkosh Defense convert Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Trucks and Palletized Load Systems to the latest model configuration and like-new, zero-mile condition.

“As the original equipment manufacturer of the Army’s heavy fleet, our recap services return worn vehicles to current operational readiness with the same performance and life cycle cost advantages as a brand-new vehicle,” Pat Williams, Oshkosh Defense vice president and general manager of Army and Marine Corps programs, said in a news release.

The work will be done in Oshkosh, with the first vehicles being completed and delivered to the Army in July 2018.
