U.S. Army awards Oshkosh Defense $243 Million order for next generation Light Tactical Vehicles
Oshkosh Defense LLC, an Oshkosh Corporation company, announced on tuesday March 22, that the U.S. Army has placed an order for the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV).

The Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) developed and manufactured by Oshkosh Defense
The contract value is estimated at $243,767,232. Oshkosh will supply to the U.S. Army 657 Joint Light Tactical Vehicles; 25 trailers; 2,977 kits; 12 months of system engineering and program management; test support; 175-test hardware; and one technical data package. The estimated completion date of the contract should be December 1, 2024.

The JLTV program is a top priority for the Department of Defense, filling a critical capability gap for the U.S. Army and Marine Corps by replacing a large portion of the legacy uparmored High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV) fleet with a modern light vehicle that provides unprecedented protection and off-road mobility, as well as transportability via air, land and sea. The Oshkosh JLTV combines the latest in automotive technologies, the innovative Oshkosh Core1080™ crew protection system, and the Oshkosh TAK-4i™ intelligent independent suspension system to provide the world’s fastest, most protected light military vehicle. The Oshkosh Defense JLTV is scalable and adaptable to future mission changes and unknown threats not only today, but for decades to come.
