At the opening of the annual Association of the U.S. Army conference in Washington today, BAE Systems distributed green business cards with one word on the front: "FMTV," in big, block letters. On the back, it says, "GET THE FACTS," with a link to a Web site, baesystems.com/fmtv.
The site lays out BAE's approach to the Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles "rebuy" competition, which was awarded to Oshkosh and is under protest by both losing bidders -- BAE and Navistar. The site also details BAE's response to the Oshkosh award and uses the quote, "Out here, you go with what you trust." The Government Accountability Office is slated to rule on the case in mid-December.
