NATO, Allied and Collation partners continue to leverage the JLTV’s superior mobility, proven protection, unmatched reliability, and interoperability for their Light Tactical Vehicle solution. To date, seven international customers have ordered or committed to this exceptional capability.

“We are committed to supporting our international allies in protecting their Warfighters and strengthening their capabilities while improving interoperability with the U.S. Military,” said John Lazar, Vice President, International for Oshkosh Defense. “Lithuania recently received its second delivery of Oshkosh Defense JLTVs, and by the end of 2024, they will have a fleet of 500 JLTVs.”

The JLTV is the latest generation of 4x4 armored vehicle fully designed and manufactured by the American company Oshkosh Defense. On 25 August 2015, the L-ATV was selected as the winner of the JLTV program. The first JLTV delivery order was placed in March 2016 with the U.S. Army ordering 657 vehicles.

The JLTV is now in service with the U.S. Army and the U.S. Marine Corps. The primary mission of the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) is to provide protected, sustained and networked light tactical mobility to the Joint forces capable of worldwide deployment across the full spectrum of military operations and mission profiles under all weather and terrain conditions.

The JLTV Family of Vehicles is comprised of two variants based upon a common automotive platform,
a two-seat Combat Support Vehicle (CSV) and a four-seat Combat Tactical Vehicle (CTV) as well as a companion trailer.

The JLTV is able to accommodate four military personnel. It incorporates field-proven technologies, advanced armor solutions and expeditionary levels of mobility to redefine safety and performance standards for the U.S. Armed Forces and international militaries. The L-ATV also is designed for future growth, with the ability to accept additional armor packages and technology upgrades as the mission requires.
