The Oshkosh Light Combat Tactical Vehicle (LCTV) will be on display at the show. Designed to demonstrate the future of light tactical vehicle technologies – including improved off-road mobility and exportable power capabilities – the LCTV has been independently developed and tested by Oshkosh Defense.

The vehicle completed the Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 off-road race in the Mexican desert in 2010. Lessons learned during the race and feedback from the field have advanced the development of technologies available to the Marine Corps today, including Oshkosh offerings for upgrading the HMMWV fleet.

     
“We’ve developed an upgraded HMMWV using our battle-tested TAK-4® independent suspension system to give Marines improved mobility, survivability and ride quality.”

“Oshkosh Defense has developed industry-leading mobility and protection solutions for the Marine Corps’ heavy and medium fleets for years, and we are expanding our efforts with extensive R&D work to bring the light fleets up to a new level of performance,” said John Bryant, vice president and general manager of Marine Corps Programs for Oshkosh Defense.

Oshkosh also will exhibit its innovations with exportable power solutions to meet the increasing energy demands of modern military equipment, in accordance with the DoD Operational Energy Strategy. A Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacement (MTVR) with On-Board Vehicle Power (OBVP), which can export up to 120 kW of military-grade power and reduce the need for generators, will also be on display.
