US Army orders more JLTVs from Oshkosh

Specialty truck manufacturer Oshkosh Corp announced that the US Army Contracting Command – Detroit Arsenal has placed a new order for Joint Light Tactical Vehicles, commonly known as JLTVs.

As the company noted, the defense arm of Oshkosh Corp. received an $84.9 million order for additional JLTVs.

“Since being awarded the JLTV contract in 2015, Oshkosh has been committed to providing the U.S. military with the most capable light tactical vehicle ever built,” said George Mansfield, vice president and general manager of joint programs for Oshkosh Defense. “Having recently completed production of 19,000th JLTV, we are confident that Oshkosh remains the most efficient and reliable choice for JLTV production for many years to come.”


This order for the Oshkosh Defense JLTV is the third in two months. The three orders have a total value of $730 million and call for more than 2,000 JLTVs for nine customers.

The JLTV can occupy any terrain while offering enough protection to take a hit from the enemy.

One of the JLTV’s features is a hydraulic system that reduces bumps in all terrains and allows soldiers to adjust the suspension to park on hills and level the vehicle.
