Oshkosh delivered six of the JLTV-based anti-ship systems to the USMC earlier this year as part of of the USMC's modernisation plans of Force Design 2030.

The USMC Systems Command has placed a $39.5 million order with kits with Oshkosh Defense for additional Remotely Operated Ground Unit for Expeditionary Fires (ROGUE-Fires) carriers and associated kits.

Based on the Oshkosh Defense Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV), ROGUE-Fires is an UGV that leverages the JLTV’s extreme off-road mobility, payload capacity.

It builds on Oshkosh’s experience with autonomous vehicle technologies 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 mode.
