Oshkosh All Wheel Drives.

The Oshkosh Motor Truck Manufacturing Company was formed, initially as the Wisconsin Duplex Auto Co. of Clintonville, by Besserdich and Mosling in 1913. It was renamed Oshkosh when it moved to the town of that name in 1917 [Bal87]. Besserdich had earlier been one of the founders of another 4x4 firm - FWD.

Here's what you get in the Oshkosh factory car park today - a fleet of M1070 Heavy Equipment Transporters.

These monsters have 500hp diesels, 5 speed automatic gearboxes, two speed transfer cases, and eight wheel drive. They are used to haul Abrams tanks around.
