: Feb 20, 2019 - : 12:03 am

Oshkosh Defence is showcasing the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) at the ongoing IDEX, as it seeks to promote the new generation platform in the region.


On display is a JLTV in General Purpose configuration, equipped with an EOS R-400S-MK2 Dual remote weapon station (RWS) integrated with Northrop Grumman’s M230LF 30mm lightweight chain gun.


“Achieving a tactical advantage on the modern battlefield requires speed and agility to get to the fight quickly, to out manoeuvre threats and to strike fast and hard,” said Mike Ivy, Senior Vice President, International Programs and Global Product Support. “With its payload capacity and system integration-minded design, the JLTV is built to accept a multitude of remotely-operated weapon configurations including cannons, missiles, and advanced non-kinetic weapon systems for use against both land and air threats.”


The JLTV platform offers Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) level protection to mitigate the most prevalent threats while delivering best-in-class off-road mobility in a highly transportable package.


The JLTV can be configured with many weapons systems, such as an optional turret, which supports standard weapons mounts for 7.62mm manned or remotely-operated machine guns or for a variety of cannon and tube-launched missile systems.


Side- or rear-mounted weapons from a wide variety of manufacturers are also seamlessly supported.
