November 30, 2018
OSHKOSH, Wis. U.S. Army officials placed a $1.69 billion order with Oshkosh Defense, LLC, an Oshkosh Corp. company, for 6,107 Joint Light Tactical Vehicles (JLTV) and associated installed and packaged kits.
To date, Oshkosh has delivered more than 2,600 vehicles. Oshkosh expects a Full Rate Production (FRP) decision in December 2018, followed by first Army unit equipped in early 2019.
“The JLTV also features a VICTORY compliant modular, scalable, open architecture system to support rapidly evolving C4ISR suites,” says George Mansfield, Vice President and General Manager of Joint Programs at Oshkosh Defense. “This provides our Soldiers and Marines a vehicle that is capable of serving as a mobile command center. Today, other vehicles with this level of C4ISR capability are much larger, with little mobility.”
