Oshkosh Defense Secures Army’s $208M JLTV Contract
The U.S. Army Contracting Command – Detroit Arsenal has put in an order for Oshkosh Defense’s Joint Light Tactical Vehicles, trailers and related installed kits.
The $208 million contract will also deliver JLTVs to the U.S. Marine Corps and U.S. Air Force, Oshkosh said Monday.
The JLTV, a replacement for the up-armored High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle fleet, comes with a configurable modular design, enabling it to meet specific mission requirements, including communications, weapon systems and other pieces of equipment.
George Mansfield, the company’s vice president and general manager of defense programs, said Oshkosh has spent years designing and building dependable light tactical vehicles for the U.S. military. He added that with its long history of partnering with the armed forces, the company is confident that it can support the U.S. Army’s modernization initiatives.
Oshkosh Defense has received several orders from the Army in 2023. In August, the service branch placed a $201 million additional order for the military vehicle manufacturer’s family of Medium Tactical Vehicles A2. It also made an additional order for Enhanced Heavy Equipment Transporter System trailers in July.
