Oshkosh Defense, a division of Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE:OSK), today marked the delivery of its first Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) prototype for United States government testing following a successful vehicle inspection by the Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA) at an event in Oshkosh, Wis. The DCMA inspection and vehicle presentation ceremony was attended by representatives from the JLTV Joint Program Office, DCMA and Oshkosh Defense.
Oshkosh Defense responds to evolving battlefield threats with the L-ATV, a light combat vehicle that meets or exceeds the fleet modernization requirements of the JLTV program.

     

The Oshkosh JLTV solution was developed to deliver unprecedented levels of mobility, survivability, transportability and life-cycle value for the JLTV program, which will replace a portion of the U.S. military’s aged High-Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV) fleet. Oshkosh Defense is delivering a total of 22 JLTV prototypes this month for the government-testing portion of the EMD phase.

“The JLTV will fill a vital capabilities gap in the military’s light vehicle fleet and protect our men and women in uniform for decades to come,” said John Urias, Oshkosh Corporation executive vice president and president of Oshkosh Defense. “The Oshkosh JLTV solution we are now submitting for government testing transforms the concept of what a light vehicle can be – merging key design aspects of high-performance tactical vehicles and highly survivable combat vehicles. The result is a new level of protected mobility in a light platform.”

Oshkosh Defense produced its JLTV prototypes on an active manufacturing line, alongside its current-production tactical wheeled vehicles (TWV). Prototypes being delivered include a four-door multi-purpose variant and two-door utility variant. Oshkosh Defense will provide training and support for the vehicles as they are accepted and evaluated by the U.S. Government.
