Oshkosh Defense, LLC, an Oshkosh Corp. announced that the U.S. Army has placed a $484 million order for 1574 more Joint Light Tactical Vehicles (JLTV) and associated installed and packaged kits.
To date, Oshkosh Defense has produced more than 2000 JLTVs and has delivered more than 1600 JLTVs to the U.S. Army and Marine Corps. A Full Rate Production (FRP) decision is expected in FY19.
“This latest order follows the completion of the Multiservice Operational Test and Evaluation (MOT&E) conducted by the U.S. Army and Marine Corps and further demonstrates that the JLTV program continues to be a top modernization priority for our armed services,” said George Mansfield, vice president and general manager of Joint Programs at Oshkosh Defense.
In addition to the recently completed operational testing, the JLTV also completed Reliability Qualification Testing earlier this year, accumulating over 100,000 miles and exceeding reliability requirements, Oshkosh said.
