OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) — Oshkosh Corp. has secured $258 million in orders to rebuild trucks and manufacture trailers for the Army.

Oshkosh will rebuild 670 heavy tactical vehicles. The Army says it saves about 25 percent when a truck is rebuilt rather than completely replaced. It refurbishes trucks with bullet holes, bent frames and mangled wheels to become like-new vehicles.

Oshkosh will also produce 356 vehicle trailers in the latest round of Army orders.
