Oshkosh Defense is displaying three Joint Light Tactical Vehicles (JLTV) and for the first time ever, a Light Combat Tactical All-Terrain Vehicle Command and Control (L-ATV C2), at the ongoing AUSA conference.
“The JLTV fleet provides our armed forces a critical combination of protection and extreme off-road mobility to ensure reliable maneuverability within combat formations,” said George Mansfield, Vice President and General Manager of Joint Programs for Oshkosh Defense. “The L-ATV C2 provides the same level of protection and extreme off-road mobility as our already fielded JLTV platform. In addition, the L-ATV C2 houses a robust communications suite, giving our armed forces the unique and highly-desirable advantage of staying well-connected while on-the-move.”
Oshkosh Defense has partnered with L3Harris Technologies to demonstrate a communications suite capability, representing just one of the ways a mobile command center can be configured on the back of a highly mobile light tactical wheeled vehicle. The L-ATV C2 has ample available power and configuration flexibility to adjust and modify its interior – depending on the needs of the commander and the crew.
The L-ATV C2 will also feature a Black Hornet Vehicle Reconnaissance System. The Black Hornet equips armored or mechanized vehicles with an immediate, organic, and self-contained surveillance and reconnaissance system.
Oshkosh is also showcasing a 2-door Utility JLTV, outfitted with the Uvision Hero-120 Tactical System. Ideal for anti-tank missions or other strategic objectives, the Hero-120 is the largest of Univision’s short-range systems. It carries a 3.5 kg warhead and can ensure an extended flight time of 60 minutes.
Elbit Systems is displaying a 2-door Utility JLTV equipped with a Spear, a fully autonomous, vehicle-mounted 120mm soft recoil mortar system for high-mobility platforms, in their booth. A 4-door General Purpose JLTV is also on display at Kongsberg’s booth, this one equipped with the Javelin Integration Kit (JIK) and a LW30 Remote Weapon Station (RWS).
