Oshkosh Defense LLC, an Oshkosh Corporation company, announces that the U.S. Marine Corps has awarded a delivery order valued at more than $16 million for an additional 23 P-19R Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting (ARFF) vehicles.    

Oshkosh began fielding the first P-19Rs in June of 2017 and in total, Oshkosh will deliver 164 P-19Rs through 2019.

“The Oshkosh P-19R Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting vehicle integrates combat-proven performance and advanced firefighting technology to deliver cutting-edge on-road and off-road firefighting capabilities,” says Pat Williams, Vice President and General Manager of Army and Marine Corps Programs at Oshkosh Defense. “The P-19R provides unmatched off-road mobility and the latest in military-class vehicle technologies to take our Marines where they need to be quickly and safely.”

The Oshkosh P-19R achieves “gold standard” performance in off-road environments with Oshkosh’s TAK-4 independent suspension system. In addition to TAK-4, the Oshkosh P-19R is equipped with Oshkosh’s Command Zone, an integrated control and diagnostics system. This fully-automated system provides access to vital vehicle information, and allows Marines to repair and troubleshoot vehicles, view real-time performance data and remotely access diagnostics information. The P-19R is also outfitted with advanced Striker firefighting systems from Oshkosh Airport Products, the industry-leading ARFF vehicle producer.

The Oshkosh P-19R will be on display at several upcoming events, including EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, WI, this week (July 24-30), at Marine Week in Detroit, MI, from September 6-10, as well as at Modern Day Marine in Quantico, VA, from September 19-21.
