Abstract:

The Armys medium truck fleet is in need of replacement. This is being accomplished by the Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles FMTV program. Due to budget priorities, however, the entire fleet cannot be replaced. As a result, the Army has established an extended service program to remanufacture 1 12 ton cargo trucks for lower priority National Guard and Army Reserve units. Various Congressional committees have directed the Army to extend the life of the 2 12 ton truck by 80 of a new truck at approximately one-half the cost. In September 1993, the Army contracted with AM General Corporation, of South Bend, Indiana, for 2,483 trucks for approximately 150 million.
