The US Army Contracting Command – Detroit Arsenal has placed an order with Oshkosh Defense for the delivery of 513 Joint Light Tactical Vehicles (JLTVs) and 1,152 trailers (JLTV-T) for the US Army, US Marine Corps, US Air Force, US Navy, and the Armed Forces of Montenegro, Brazil, and Lithuania.
This announcement comes just a month before the follow-on contract proposals are due.
The contract, worth $216 million, calls for more than 15,000 additional vehicles over five order years followed by five option years, extending the associated production through 2034.
“Seven years ago, we assembled a world-class team of experts in engineering, manufacturing, supply chain management, and operations, and delivered a winning JLTV solution to the US military,” said George Mansfield, Vice President and General Manager of Joint Programs for Oshkosh Defense. “Today, we have an experienced workforce, a refined manufacturing process, and a mature, robust supply chain. No one else can say that. We are committed to delivering the best protected mobility vehicle for years to come.”
To date, Oshkosh Defense has built almost 17,000 vehicles and delivered them to over 50 locations worldwide.
This new contract is expected to be awarded during the first quarter of 2023.
