The United States military has expended a great deal of logistics and support vehicles in Iraq and Afghanistan. These trucks have taken a beating both from heavy use and enemy attacks. The Army has let several contracts recently to repair, reset and replace them. Yesterday it was announced that Navistar would be awarded a contract to provide tanker trucks, wreckers and generic troop transport vehicles. The value of this contract is over $400 million.

Navistar was disappointed that it did not win a portion of the MRAP-ATV contract to provide the lighter vehicles for use in Afghanistan. That contract went to Oshkosh. This contract will offset some of the losses from not contributing to that effort. It also demonstrates that the U.S. has been able to grow a decent industrial base when it comes to logistic support vehicles.
