Oshkosh Defense wins contract from US Army to deliver 2,721 JLTVs

Oshkosh Defense has received a contract from the US Army Contracting Command to deliver joint light tactical vehicles (JLTVs) for the four US Military branches.

Oshkosh Defense has received a contract from the US Army Contracting Command to deliver joint light tactical vehicles (JLTVs) for the four US Military branches.

The $803.9m contract includes the supply of 2,721 additional JLTVs for the US Army, US Air Force, US Navy and US Marine Corps.

Under the contract modification, Oshkosh will also provide 16,714 associated kits. The company expects to receive additional orders in the current fiscal year.

The delivery order also includes 30 vehicles for Montenegro. The US Government is selling the Oshkosh JLTVs to the Balkan country under a foreign military sale.

Oshkosh Defense joint programmes vice-president and general manager George Mansfield said: “As the threats on today’s modern battlefield continue to evolve, our warfighters need a highly capable light tactical vehicle that is uniquely suited for mission adaptability.

“The JLTV can accommodate over 100 different mission package configurations without sacrificing mobility or transportability.”

The company stated that the light tactical vehicles will allow the nation’s army, airforce, navy, and marine corps to conduct missions in support of the national defence strategy.

Montenegro will be among the first Nato allies to procure the JLTV, the firm added.

The army command received three bids for the contract. Work under the contract is anticipated to be completed by 31 January 2022.

Earlier this week, Elbit Systems was awarded a contract to provide remote-controlled weapon stations (RCWS) for the Oshkosh JLTVs to be procured by the Montenegrin Armed Forces.

The company is responsible for the integration of the RCWS on the vehicles and providing logistic support.
