10,000th JLTV Produced

Oshkosh Streamlined Production Process and Reduced Costs

 

Oshkosh Defense announced production of the 10,000th Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) on 9 February.

Reaching this milestone comes after years of experience in designing, building, and delivering the vehicle. Since program award in August 2015, the company has built a robust, dependable supply chain; optimized its manufacturing process and maximized efficiencies; and provided JLTVs at a contractual price substantially lower than the government cost estimate.

This milestone is a true testament to the pride and dedication that our team members have in the JLTV program which has become a central piece of the U.S. military’s ground force,” said George Mansfield, Vice President and General Manager of Joint Programs for Oshkosh Defense. “Producing the 10,000th JLTV in under five years is further evidence of our ability to meet the demands of our domestic and international customers by providing the world’s most capable light tactical vehicle at a great price,” he commented.

To date, Oshkosh Defense has received orders for 18,126 JLTVs, for a total contract value over $6 billion (€4.9 billion).  Over 6,500 of those vehicles have already been fielded at over 30 US and international military installations. International interest in the JLTV also continues to grow, with orders or commitments from seven NATO and non-NATO allies, including the United Kingdom, Belgium, Montenegro, Slovenia, Lithuania, Brazil, and North Macedonia.
