Oshkosh Defense JLTV

The US Army just gave Oshkosh Defense a contract worth $6.76 billion for an order of 17,000 JLTVs (Joint Light Tactical Vehicle), which will dethrone the old Humvee vehicles that have been a major part of our military’s mobility for over 20 years.

The JLTV has armor plating and a “Core1080 Crew Protection System,” which eliminates the vulnerability that the Humvees had in certain areas of operation. It also sports impressive weapons systems such as turret operated systems, remote weapons and a tube launched missile system. It has a greater versatility and efficiency than the Humvee, with improved fuel economy in both idle and operational modes. The power train adapts to different operating conditions, and it has an optimized engine power-to-weight ratio for superior acceleration capabilities. The Army will begin rolling out their new ride in 2018.
