Oshkosh Defense has received a $484 million order from the US Army for 1,574 Joint Light Tactical Vehicles (JLTV) and associated installed and packaged kits, the company announced on 29 June.

The JLTV has completed operational testing as well as Reliability Qualification Testing earlier in 2018, accumulating over 100,000 miles.

George Mansfield, VP and general manager of joint programs at Oshkosh Defense, said: ‘This latest order follows the completion of the multi-service operational test and evaluation conducted by the US Army and Marine Corps and further demonstrates that the JLTV programme continues to be a top modernisation priority for our armed services.

‘The JLTV is ready to support our troops and we look forward to getting more soldiers and marines into this extremely mobile, protected and proven next-generation light tactical vehicle.’

To date, Oshkosh has produced over 2,000 JLTVs and has delivered more than 1,600 JLTVs to the US Army and Marine Corps. A full rate production decision is expected in fiscal year 2019.
