Oshkosh Defense announced on 1 July that the US Army Contracting Command has placed a $216 Million order for 513 Joint Light Tactical Vehicles (JLTVs) and 1,152 trailers (JLTV-T) for the US Army, US Marine Corps, US Air Force, US Navy, and the Armed Forces of Montenegro, Brazil, and Lithuania.
“Seven years ago, we assembled a world-class team of experts in engineering, manufacturing, supply chain management, and operations, and delivered a winning JLTV solution to the US military,” said George Mansfield, Vice President and General Manager of Joint Programs for Oshkosh Defense.
“Today, we have an experienced workforce, a refined manufacturing process, and a mature, robust supply chain. No one else can say that. We are committed to delivering the best protected mobility vehicle for years to come.”
The announcement comes just a month before the follow-on contract proposals are due. The contract calls for more than 15,000 additional vehicles over five order years followed by five option years, extending the associated production through 2034.
The contract is expected to be awarded during the first quarter of 2023.
