Is there another billion dollar military vehicle order in Oshkosh Corp.’s  future?  According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, the Oshkosh, Wis. manufacturer could pursue a $1 billion military vehicle deal with the United Kingdom under approval that’s been granted by the U.S. State Department.

The sale has not been concluded, but the agency’s approval is a necessary and important first step toward landing contract, Oshkosh said. 

The U.S. State Department said the United Kingdom has requested a possible purchase of up to 2747 Oshkosh Joint Light Tactical Vehicles valued at $1.035 billion.  The JLTV is manufactured in Oshkosh.

The Defense Security Cooperation Agency has delivered the required certification notifying Congress of this possible sale
