The United States Company Lockheed Martin presents for the first time in Europe its JLTV vehicle at DVD 2012 Defence Vehicle Dynamics Exhibition, Millbrook, United Kingdom. JLTV is the U.S. program that will complement and replace the decades-old Humvee military vehicle. In a time when improvised explosive devices present significant risk to troops, JLTV has advanced armor and hull designs to keep users safe.

The primary goal of JLTV is to provide an affordable Family of Vehicles (FOV) — and 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. All this capability is delivered in an affordable package, thanks to 60 percent better fuel efficiency compared to legacy vehicles, improved reliability and maximizing common components between vehicles.
The JLTV program creates a common family of vehicles consisting of the Combat Tactical Vehicle and Combat Support Vehicle, both with multiple variants. The Lockheed Martin team provides unique, netenabled, integrated vehicles that effectively balance payload, protection, performance, transportability and affordability. During the program’s TD phase the JLTV team delivered 10 TD vehicles in three payload categories and five companion trailers to the U.S. government, including two Right Hand Operation JLTV vehicles and one companion trailer to the Australian military.
