Jankel has signed agreements with major UK defence industry experts to enable the delivery of the Oshkosh Defense Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) to the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD).
This will enable the creation of a team of UK-based subject matter experts who will work on fulfilling key protected mobility requirements of the British Armed Forces.
The development follows a teaming agreement between Jankel and Oshkosh Defense to use the combined capabilities to meet the UK’s defence vehicle needs.
In this regard, Jankel is developing a partnership framework to form an expert supply chain to focus on design, sub-system integration, manufacturing, assembly, and through life support capabilities.
The team will develop a mechanism in line with the government’s Land Industrial Strategy, enabling the MoD to procure and upgrade the JLTV throughout its life.
As part of the initial agreements, Jankel collaborated with NP Aerospace and Make UK Defence.

While NP Aerospace has experience in delivering defence vehicle projects, defence trade organisation Make UK Defence will help access a wide range of industry expertise.
Verified through 29 blast tests and 250,000 miles of reliability tests, the JLTV will provide the MoD with a role-versatile and affordable protected mobility solution.
Jankel chairman Andrew Jankel said: “We have so much talent present in the UK defence industry and to begin to bring it all together like this is very exciting and will give the MoD exactly what they need whilst remaining fully aligned with the Land Industrial Strategy.
“Looking ahead and beyond JLTV, these partnerships could be further developed to support our long-term strategy of establishing a UK-based light vehicle centre of excellence that integrates and further develops the best of British technology and innovation into world-leading vehicle platforms, to meet future UK and global requirements.”
