Oshkosh Defense has received an $803.9 million (€723 million) order for 2,721 Joint Light Tactical Vehicles (JLTVs) from US Army Contracting Command, the company announced on 18 December, adding that further orders from the Command are expected are anticipated within this fiscal year.
This order includes JLTVs for the US Army, Marine Corps, Air Force and Navy, as well as 30 vehicles for Montenegro, one of the first NATO allies to receive JLTV, via Foreign Military Sale (FMS). The distribution of JLTVs ensures that multiple branches of the US military have the light tactical vehicle they need to perform missions that support the National Defense Strategy.
“As the threats on today’s modern battlefield continue to evolve, our warfighters need a highly capable light tactical vehicle that is uniquely suited for mission adaptability,” said George Mansfield, Vice President and General Manager of Joint Programs for Oshkosh Defense. “The JLTV can accommodate over 100 different mission package configurations without sacrificing mobility or transportability.”
