Oshkosh Defense is attending the Border Management Summit Southwest with the high-mobility protected tactical vehicle
Oshkosh Defense will be exhibiting the Tactical Protector Vehicle (TPV) – a high-mobility, protected tactical vehicle – for the border patrol community at IDGA’s Border Management Summit Southwest, to be held in Phoenix, May 24-26, 2010.

The Oshkosh TPV is engineered to help tackle the tough challenges faced by law enforcement officers who protect our nation’s borders. Designed for superior manoeuvrability and speed, the vehicle can accommodate the roughest terrain at speeds up to 75 mph. Its engineered Armour systems can be custom-configured to serve a variety of tactical needs.

“The Oshkosh TPV is a purpose-built vehicle, designed to protect officers, the communities they serve and the borders they protect,” said Jack Reiff, Oshkosh Corporation program director, Defense. “The TPV offers the optimal balance of mobility, crew protection and payload to meet the most rigorous law-enforcement demands. It can be customized for a variety of high-risk missions in places ranging from rural outposts to city streets.”

Beyond its high-mobility capabilities, the TPV employs military-grade Armour protection that meets or exceeds the highest-threat scenarios border security officers face. The vehicle offers NIJ Level IV protection, and is capable of stopping multi-hit, armour-piercing rounds.

The vehicle’s high-energy-absorbing under-body armour, ballistic-steel roof and suspended-seat systems provide optimum safety and security for occupants. The Oshkosh TPV footprint is more compact than other tactical vehicles used for border patrol.

The TPV carries up to eight people, and is available with a payload capacity of 4,220 pounds. It’s built on a rugged Ford F550 chassis shortened to a 116-inch wheelbase and upgraded with heavy-duty suspension components. With selectable four-wheel drive, 13 inches of ground clearance and run-flat tires, the TPV can overcome obstructions with ease.

The vehicle has a 6.4L V8, 325-hp engine and can reach 75 mph. It has a 38-degree approach angle and 30-degree departure angle. With a 36-degree static side slope and up to an 18-inch vertical-step capability, the TPV can carry officers confidently up inclines ranging to 60-percent grades. Front and rear winches aid in vehicle self-recovery in muddy terrain or deep snow.

Oshkosh Defense has unmatched experience in building high-protection, high-performance vehicles for the military, homeland security and law enforcement. The Tactical Protector Vehicle is now available through Oshkosh Defense and select dealers throughout the United States and Canada. Bumper-to-bumper vehicle service is available through certified maintenance facilities across the country.
