US Army Contracts Oshkosh Defense for 1,669 Additional JLTV

$592 Million Order Plugs US and Allied Capability Gaps

US Army Contracting Command has awarded Oshkosh Defense an order valued at $591.6 million (€523.9) for 1,669 Joint Light Tactical Vehicles (JLTV), 868 companion trailers, and associated packaged and installed kits, the company announced on 29 November.

The order includes JLTVs for the US Army, Marine Corps, Air Force, and Navy – 125 vehicles will be delivered to NATO and allies, including Brazil, Lithuania, Montenegro, and Slovenia.

Since winning the competitive JLTV contract in 2015, Oshkosh Defense has built over 14,000 JLTVs. “Our team takes great pride in designing and building a versatile platform that can survive the extreme demands of future combat,” commented George Mansfield, VP/GM of Joint Programs for Oshkosh Defense.That’s what we do, and what we’ve been doing for decades: and Oshkosh’s vast tactical wheeled vehicle experience, expertise and know-how grows with every vehicle that comes off our production line.”

International momentum surrounding JLTV also continues to grow, as customers seek a light tactical vehicle with lethal capabilities, fleet commonality attributes, and design flexibility. “Integrated lethality on an agile and protected vehicle like the Oshkosh JLTV is quickly filling capability gaps that exist in many international militaries,” explained John Lazar, VP/GM of International Programs. “This past year, we’ve seen an increased interest in the Oshkosh JLTV from international customers with dynamic demonstrations and live fires across Europe with more planned for 2022.”
