Javelin tested using RWS on JLTV

26th June 2019 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Oshkosh Defense and industry partners have participated in a flight test at the Redstone Test Center in Redstone Arsenal, Alabama, during which a Javelin anti-tank guided missile was tested using a Kongsberg remote weapon station mounted on a Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV).

This demonstration represented a first-time firing of both the Javelin and the Northrop Grumman lightweight 30mm cannon through a remotely operated weapon station on the Oshkosh JLTV.

‘This successful demonstration further solidifies the importance of the JLTV's position within the current combat fleet formation,’ George Mansfield, vice president and general manager of joint programs at Oshkosh Defense, said.

‘The JLTV is the only light tactical vehicle on the field today that can manoeuvre within combat formations, hauling critical weaponry and equipment quickly across complex terrain, all while keeping our troops safe and protected.’

US military representatives plus guests from multiple other nations attended and observed the event.

Javelin is an anti-tank, guided munition and surveillance weapon system made by the Javelin Joint Venture, a partnership between Raytheon and Lockheed Martin.
