The US State Department has made a determination approving a potential foreign military sale of Joint Light Tactical Vehicles (JLTVs) to the UK, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency announced on 10 July. The estimated cost of the package is $1.035 billion.
The UK has requested 2,747 JLTVs along with supporting equipment. This includes baseline integration kits, basic issue item kits, B-kit armour, engine arctic kits, fording kits, run-flat kits, spare tire kits, silent watch kits, power expansion kits and cargo cover kits.
The request also includes maintainer and operator training, logistics support services and other related elements of logistics and programme support.
The UK has requested the vehicles to improve its light tactical vehicle fleet and enhance its ability to meet current and future threats.
If the sale goes ahead, Oshkosh Defense will be the prime contractor for the programme.
