Oshkosh Defense Secures $911M Contract to Deliver Military Tactical Vehicles
Meant for the future battlefield with advanced features that address the requirements of the warfighter’s changing mission conditions, the JLTV provides protection, off-road mobility, network capability and additional firepower.
“Designing, building, and delivering the world’s most capable light tactical vehicle, the Oshkosh JLTV, is one of our greatest accomplishments. And we plan to continue building the Oshkosh JLTV for many years to come,” said George Mansfield, the company vice president and general manager for joint programs.
The JLTV order is the second largest for the Wisconsin-based defense contractor. Included in the deal are 59 vehicles for shipment to NATO and non-NATO allies such as Lithuania, North Macedonia and Brazil.
In February, the company received a $407.3M order to provide the JLTV to the Army, Marine Corps and two foreign military sales customers. The transaction included 1.2K vehicles and associated equipment to support Army and Marine Corps missions, as well as the governments of Lithuania and Slovenia.
Mansfield said the vehicle works to integrate with more than 100 mission-specific package configurations. He added that the company works with the JLTV joint program office to make sure the platform's capacity to defend against sophisticated adversaries.
