Work will be performed in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, with an estimated completion date of Oct. 31, 2022. Fiscal 2021 Foreign Military Sales (Macedonia, Slovenia and Montenegro) and 2021 USMC procurement funds in the amount of $15,261,587 were obligated at the time of the award. U.S. Army Contracting Command, Detroit Arsenal, Michigan, is the contracting activity.

JLTVs are configured to support multiple mission packages, derived from two base vehicle configurations : the four-door Combat Tactical Vehicle and two-door Combat Support Vehicle. The program is a modernization effort intended to replace a portion of the Army and Marine Corps’ High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV) fleet with a family of vehicles designed to exceed the performance characteristics of the armored HMMWV Expanded Capability Vehicle (ECV) in terms of both automotive performance and armored protection.

The vehicle design provides the warfighter with increased protection through the use of scalable armor solutions, while restoring payload capabilities lost due to the armoring of the HMMWV fleet. The JLTV increases warfighter maneuver capacity by providing expeditionary mobility on the modern battlefield.
