Oshkosh Defense has recently produced the 10,000th Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV). This significant milestone represents over a decade of proprietary experience in designing, building and delivering the world’s most capable light tactical vehicle. Since the programme was awarded to Oshkosh Defense in August 2015, the company has built a robust, dependable supply chain. It has also optimised its manufacturing process and maximised efficiencies. This is at the same time as providing JLTVs at a contractual price substantially lower than the Government cost estimate.
“This milestone is a true testament to the pride and dedication that our team members have in the JLTV programme which has become a central piece of the US military’s ground force,” said George Mansfield, Vice President and General Manager of Joint Programmes for Oshkosh Defense.
“Producing the 10,000th JLTV in under five years is further evidence of our ability to meet the demands of our domestic and international customers by providing the world’s most capable light tactical vehicle at a great price. We’re excited to continue working with our military customer to further refine and expand the platform.”
To date, Oshkosh Defense has received orders for 18,126 JLTVs for a total contract value over US$6Bn. Over 6,500 of those vehicles have been fielded with Warfighters around the globe, including over 30 US and international military installations.
International interest in the JLTV also continues to grow. Oshkosh Defense has received orders or commitments from seven NATO and non-NATO allies including:
- the UK
- North Macedonia
