OSHKOSH – Oshkosh Corp. is participating in Eurosatory 2014, a European military trade show that runs this week in Paris.

Oshkosh Corp. will be displaying its armored all-terrain trucks at the show, where products will be shown to officials from 130 countries, according to a statement. Oshkosh will be giving live demonstrations of its products, including the Oshkosh MRAP all-terrain vehicle, which is equipped with a mine sweeper and TerraMax UGV.

“In today’s conflicts, the frontlines have been blurred and troops carrying out logistics missions are exposed to improvised explosive devices and other lethal threats previously reserved for battle zones,” said John Urias, executive vice president of Oshkosh Corp. and president of Oshkosh Defense. “The Oshkosh TerraMax UGV has the potential to reduce troops’ exposure to these threats, while optimizing the number of troops needed for such operations.”
