Oshkosh

Oshkosh is nearing a goal of building 1,000 armoured, all-terrain trucks a month - up from 46 built in July as the program was getting started.
The last time that American industry moved from concept to full-rate military production in less than a year was World War II.

We used to have AEC, Leyland, Foden and Bedford here in the UK supplying sturdy military trucks - now all gone!

Now we buy MAN trucks from Germany:-
