Lockheed Martin presents the latest version of JLTV Joint Light Tactical Vehicle at AUSA 2013.
At AUSA 2013, Lockheed Martin presents the latest version of the JLTV (Joint Light Tactical Vehicle) which was just delivered to the U.S. Army and Marine Corps on Aug. 14, 2013 for 14 months of test and evaluation. A production award is expected in late fiscal 2015 for approximately 50,000 JLTVs for the Army, with their Marine Corps partners purchasing another 5,500 vehicles.

The primary goal of Lockheed Martin JLTV is to provide a Family of Vehicles (FOV), with companion trailers, that are capable of performing multiple mission roles designed to provide protected, sustained and networked mobility for personnel and payloads across the full range of military operations.

Designed as a more capable and survivable replacement for many of the current Army and Marine Corps HMMWV “Humvees,” the Lockheed Martin JLTV is systems engineered to return crucial protection, mobility and transportability to Soldiers and Marines. In refining its JLTV EMD design, the Lockheed Martin team optimized a vehicle already proven in testing during the program’s previous Technology Development phase. The result is a lighter, more blast-resistant and more agile JLTV that maintains the proven force protection, mobility, transportability and reliability of the earlier model, while significantly reducing weight and cost.

BAE Systems is responsible for providing the JLTV's armored cabs and the vehicle’s innovative geometrically enhanced protection system, a design that enables levels of blast protection never before achieved in this vehicle class.

Designed-in reliability and supportability are hallmarks of the Lockheed Martin JLTV, with the result being reduced life-cycle costs. The vehicles showed exceptional reliability and superior fuel efficiency in more than 180,000 miles of testing.

The JLTV program creates a family of vehicles consisting of the general purpose (4-door) and utility (2 door) variants, which can be enhanced with mission kits. The variants share a high degree of commonality which reduces operations and support costs, and enhances training.
