The Oshkosh Defense consortium, which includes Hanwha Defense USA, a division of Hanwha Defense Corporation, was recently selected to participate in the US Army’s Optionally Manned Fighting Vehicle (OMFV) programme’s Concept Design Phase. Hanwha Defense Australia (HDA), another division of Hanwha Defense Corporation, will also support the Oshkosh Defense OMFV consortium, the company writes in a press release.

The Oshkosh Defense OMFV concept is based on Hanwha’s REDBACK chassis. The REDBACK is one of two contenders for Australia’s Land 400 Phase 3 IFV requirement, which is expected to be awarded in 2022.
