   The Oshkosh MTVR or Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacement is a purpose-designed military truck. The MTVR entered production in 2005. This vehicle is in service with the US Navy and Marine Corps. It replaces the M939 and ageing M809 5-ton 6x6 trucks. The new truck offers greater mobility, payload and reliability. It was first fielded in 1998. Over 11 000 of MTVR trucks were delivered by 2012. Another 260 vehicles were ordered for delivery in 2013. Export operators are Egypt, Greece, Iraq and the United Kingdom.

   All versions of the MTVR use the same 6x6 configuration. Engine is located under a forward fiberglass bonnet. Roof of the cab with hinged aluminum windscreen and door frames can be folded down to reduce overall height.

   This heavy utility truck can carry a payload of seven tons or up to fifteen tons driving on smoother surfaces, while simultaneously being able to tow an eleven ton load. The MTVR is highly adaptable for any cargo hauling, carrying or winching. Its wide versatility makes the MTVR an integral part of the Marine Corps logistical backbone. This vehicle is the prime mover for the M777 howitzer, troops, fuel, water and a wide variety of other equipment.

   The MTVR truck can be fitted with armor protection kit or armed with a 12.7 mm or 7.62 mm machine gun. Armament sit in a mounted position above the cab.

   The Oshkosh MTVR is powered by the Caterpillar C-12 11.9-liter turbocharged diesel engine, developing 425 hp. It has a full-time all-wheel drive. Vehicle has an independent suspension and is fitted with a central tyre inflation system. This military truck has good cross-country performance. The MTVR uses some commercially available driveline components. Some versions of the MTVR are fitted with a 9-ton capacity winch. Vehicle can be airlifted by the C-130 Hercules aircraft (with some preparation), and CH-53 helicopter.
