Oshkosh Defense LCTV Military ATV

One way to know whether your military vehicle is built to stand up to the challenges and extreme conditions of the battlefield is to test it thoroughly. Oshkosh Defense, the Wisconsin-based military contractor did that and then some when they entered their LCTV Demonstrator into one of the worlds most brutal off-road races, the Baja 1,000.

Oshkosh’s LCTV was more than up to the challenge. Lighter, faster, and more adaptable than a traditional military ATV, this vehicle made it through the desert with ease thanks to the ProPulse Diesel-Electric Hybrid powerplant working alongside the proprietary TAK-4 independent suspension. This unique suspension system sees each axle module being independently driven by a dedicated motor that is controlled from its own power converter. The end result is a more versatile and efficient vehicle that can withstand gunfire and blasts from under the chassis. Built in Oregon, tested in the desert, ready for the battlefield.
