The US Army Contracting Command – Detroit Arsenal has placed a $543 million follow-on order with Oshkosh Defense for the provision of additional Joint Light Tactical Vehicles (JLTVs) and trailers (JLTV-T).
Under this contract option, the company will deliver up to 1,681 JLTVs and 618 JLTV-Ts along with associated packaged and installed kits to be used by the US Army, US Marine Corps, US Air Force, and US Navy.
According to the US Department of Defense, work will be performed at the company’s facility in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, with work estimated to be completed in July 2024.
“Oshkosh has spent the past eight years optimizing its manufacturing and design processes and building a robust supply chain with maximized efficiencies,” said George Mansfield, Vice President and General Manager of Joint Programs for Oshkosh Defense. “As we prepare for the follow-on contract award to be announced in early 2023, Oshkosh is in a great position to continue providing the best JLTV solution today and for many years to come.”
Since winning the competitive JLTV contract in 2015, Oshkosh has built over 18,500 JLTVs and fielded vehicles to over 50 US and international military installations. Oshkosh has also secured more than 125 patents and applications on the JLTV family of vehicles and related technologies, and invested in several technology demonstrators such as the hybrid electric JLTV (eJLTV).
