Oshkosh Defense to deliver 322 JLTVs to Belgium

Oshkosh Defense has secured a contract to deliver 322 Joint Light Tactical Vehicles (JLTVs) to the Belgium Defence Forces.

Oshkosh Defense has secured a contract to deliver 322 Joint Light Tactical Vehicles (JLTVs) to the Belgium Defence Forces.

Awarded by the Belgium Ministry of Defence, the contract will involve the delivery of 322 Oshkosh Defense Command and Liaison Vehicles (CLV), a JLTV platform equipped with Belgian communication systems. This JLTV is also used by the US military.

Oshkosh Defense president John Bryant said: “Oshkosh Defense is honoured that Belgium has chosen to equip its armed forces with the Oshkosh CLV.

“The Oshkosh CLV offers Belgian soldiers the world’s most advanced light military vehicle, delivering next-generation levels of protection, off-road mobility, speed, transportability, and seamless operational and logistical interoperability with North Atlantic Treaty Organization (Nato) allies.”

The deal marks Oshkosh Defense’s first large direct commercial sale of a JLTV-based vehicle, which is usually procured through foreign military sale programmes.

Director Land Systems Colonel Filip De Varé said: “The Belgian Defence opted for a worldwide competition in which ‘money for value’ was the only criterion.

“The CLV will be integrated in the CaMo programme, an international partnership between the French and Belgian land forces.”

Oshkosh Defense, an Oshkosh Corporation company, delivers military vehicles and mobility systems.

In July, the company secured a $127m order to deliver 248 JLTVs and related kits for the US Army, US Marine Corps (USMC) and the Department of State.

It also received another contract this year to produce JLTV-Trailers for the US Army.
