A major military contract is coming to the Oshkosh Corporation. The defense department wants the company to make more than 2,200 M.A.T.V off-road vehicles for troops in Afganistan. 

A spokeswoman for the Oshkosh Corporation says the contract is for a little more than $1 billion. She says the vehicles will be able to handle the rough terrain in the country.

While the contract will have a positive effect on employment, company officials don't know exactly how many workers they'll need to do the job.

There are reports that the new contract could be worth up to $12 billion over the next two fiscal years.
