The defense arm of Oshkosh Corp. has received another military contract, this one calling for the vehicle manufacturer to provide protective armor for nearly 1,000 trucks.

Oshkosh Defense said Thursday the deal is worth more than $54 million.

The contract means the company will provide armor for its new class of mine-resistant trucks. The all-terrain vehicles are specially designed to handle the rougher terrain of Afghanistan battlefields.

The Oshkosh, Wis.-based company says it will supply 800 kits that protect against rocket-propelled grenades, and more than 170 that guard against explosives.
