Oshkosh Defense, LLC, an Oshkosh Corporation company, announced today that the U.S. Army Contracting Command – Detroit Arsenal has placed a $102 Million order for Joint Light Tactical Vehicles (JLTVs). JLTVs will be delivered to Romania, Lithuania, North Macedonia, Brazil, and Montenegro. 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. Lithuania recently received its second delivery of Oshkosh Defense Joint Light Tactical Vehicles (JLTVs), and by the end of 2024, they will have a fleet of 500 JLTVs,” said John Lazar, Vice President, International for Oshkosh Defense.
The Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) is a United States military (specifically U.S. Army, U.S. Marine Corps) and United States Special Operations Command program to partially replace the Humvee fleet with a family of more survivable vehicles having a greater payload. Early studies for the JLTV program were approved in 2006. Oshkosh’s L-ATV was selected as the winner of the JLTV program in August 2015 and awarded an initial production contract for up to 16,901 JLTVs. The JLTV family and its nomenclature evolved throughout the development process and to date the U.S. Army has allocated M designations to four individual JLTV configurations.
