Since founding Man on the Move in 2007, we have spotted our fair share of rides in Manhattan. Chrome Lambos, homemade rat rods and everything in-between. I guess there’s a first time for everything though because I have never run into a Medium Tactical Vehicle in Murray Hill before. And when I say Medium Tactical Vehicle, that’s exactly what I mean (wanna see the brochure). Unsure of exactly what I was looking at upon first sight, I did some body inspection and found an Oshkosh logo painted over in camoflogue. Let’s just say these guys don’t make kids overalls. Oshkosh Defense manufacturers some utterly heavy duty, all-conquering rigs capable of traversing any harsh environment earth (or war) is capable of mustering.
Here are a couple of fun facts:
- 15 Ton payload (on-road) and 7 tons (off road)
- Capable of traversing a 60% gradient and 30% side slope
- Can ford up to four feet of water (thats taller than many cars)
- Available in 4×4 or 6×6
