The U.S. Army Contracting Command – Detroit Arsenal has awarded Oshkosh Defense a $160M order for additional Oshkosh Joint Light Tactical Vehicles (JLTV) and associated packaged and installed kits.

The order includes JLTVs for international allies including Mongolia, Romania, North Macedonia, Slovenia, and Slovakia.

The Oshkosh JLTV’s modular design and digital architecture allow it to accommodate more than 100 mission packages that incorporate weapons, lasers, sensors, networking, and communication.

The JLTVs are designed for speed, power and protected mobility outside the wire. From its patented TAK-4iTM intelligent independent suspension system to scalable levels of protection and complete plug and play C4ISR capability, Oshkosh believes its JLTV is the “go-anywhere, do-anything” light tactical vehicle.

Earlier in November, Oshkosh Defense received a $208M order from the U.S. Army for additional JLTVs, JLTV trailers and associated kits.

George Mansfield, Vice President and General Manager of Defense Programs at Oshkosh Defense, said; “The Oshkosh Defense JLTV has consistently demonstrated its ability to fill critical capability gaps and we are honored by the continued interest from international allies. 

“As the sole OEM that can supply JLTV’s through Direct Commercial Sales (DCS), Oshkosh will continue our support of NATO, Allied, and Coalition Forces that want to modernize their militaries with the JLTV’s battlefield-proven payload, performance, protection and network connectivity.”
