Oshkosh Defense demonstrated the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) based Remotely Operated Ground Unit for Expeditionary (ROGUE) Fires at the Sink at Sea Live Fire Training Exercises (SINKEX) in Hawaii. As part of the demonstration, a Navy Marine Expeditionary Ship Interdiction System launcher, based on a ROGUE Fires chassis, successfully launched a Naval Strike Missile (NSM) and scored a direct hit on a target at sea.

SINKEX is a component of the US Navy’s Large-Scale Exercise (LSE) 2021, a global event in which sailors and marines test and validate the Navy’s and Marine Corps’ operating concepts.

ROGUE Fires is an Unmanned Ground Vehicle that leverages the JLTV’s off-road mobility and payload capacity to support Ground-Based Anti-Ship Missile operations. The unmanned technology associated with ROGUE Fires allows the vehicle to operate in teleoperator or leader-follower modes.
