OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) -- Oshkosh Corp. has delivered the first truck in a $3 billion military contract.

The Wisconsin National Guard has the first of more than 18,000 tactical vehicles that the company plans to build. The majority of the trucks will go to National Guard units for use at home and overseas.

The Oshkosh manufacturer has expanded its facilities in Wisconsin and Michigan to handle the work. Several thousand employees will build nearly 40 trucks a day. The contract includes a series of 17 vehicles, ranging from 2-ton to 10-ton payloads.

The Journal Sentinel says the inaugural truck was delivered to the 1157th Transportation Company in Oshkosh on Wednesday.
