At the Special Operations Forces Industry Conference (SOFIC), Oshkosh unveiled the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) with a special forces mission package.

The vehicle was equipped with a Kongsberg Common Remotely Operated Weapon Station (CROWS), a Javelin Integration Kit (JIK) and a .50 Caliber Machine Gun. The high firepower is complemented by an electronic architecture designed for integration into tactical networks. Despite the high weight of the weapons, the JLTV remains so mobile that it can be used in combat together with the other combat vehicles. The combination of scalability and flexibility makes the JLTV suitable for the unpredictable and evolving mission requirements of special forces.

“The JLTV is a disruptive force booster that enables operators to achieve escalating and de-escalating effects in military operations – from environmental and peace missions to dangerous enemy conditions,” George Mansfield, Vice President and General Manager Joint Programs at Oshkosh Defense.
