Even the U.S. Army is thinking about the price of a gallon of gas and Oshkosh Truck Corporation is ready to help.
The new truck implements a ProPulse diesel-electric hybrid drive system capable of increasing its fuel efficiency by 20 percent. The increase translates to 2.5 instead of two miles per gallon, but any increase makes a difference on the battlefield, Oshkosh Truck Executive Vice President John Stoddart said.
“It’s more stable and maneuverable. It’s got a 40 percent larger cab and 20 percent better fuel economy,” Stoddart said. “That’s a big deal when you’re moving around the sands of Iraq or the mountains of Afghanistan.”
The truck also features a generator capable of 200 kilowatts of AC power or enough to safely run Wittman Regional Airport, Stoddart and Truck’s defense division found out.

Hehe, I came into this thread thinking that OshKosh B'Gosh was now designing and building military vehicles! The sad part is, it wasn't very shocking to me. I'm still waiting for Fisher Price to come out with a semi-automatic rifle.
