Oshkosh Defense Showcases JLTV at Eurosatory 2018

: Jun 11, 2018 - : 4:31 pm

Oshkosh Defense is exhibiting the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) at Eurosatory in Paris. The event concludes June 15.

In July 2017, the Pentagon’s Defense Security Cooperation Agency announced that the JLTVs would be sold through the Foreign Military Sales (FMS) process to the United Kingdom for the Multi Role Vehicle Protected (MRV-P) Program. This is the first FMS case to be initiated since Oshkosh was awarded the U.S. contract in August of 2015 to replace up to 16,901 U.S. Army and U.S. Marine Corps in-service uparmored High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWVs).

“The robust protection and mobility of the JLTV clearly make it a great candidate for global light TWV requirements,” said Mike Ivy, Sr. Vice President of International Programs and Global Product Support at Oshkosh Defense. “We can tailor the vehicle to meet specific customer requirements to optimize performance in virtually any operating environment. Earlier this year, we had the opportunity to demonstrate the JLTV in the United Kingdom for the British Ministry of Defence as well as many of our allies in the region. The feedback received from our customers was incredibly positive.”

The JLTV program office expects the first Army unit equipped by mid-FY19 and both the Army and Marine Corps to achieve Initial Operating Capability (IOC) in early FY20. To date, Oshkosh has manufactured over 2,000 JLTVs and has delivered over 1,600 to the U.S. customer.
