4th January 2017 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Oshkosh Defense will deliver additional Joint Light Tactical Vehicles (JLTV) to the US Army under an order announced on 2 January.

The order, valued at more than $176 million, includes 409 vehicles, 1,984 installed kits, 82 packaged kits along with related services and support.

This is the fourth order for the JLTV programme since the contract was awarded in August 2015. The vehicles and kits for this order will begin delivery in late 2017.

Dave Diersen, vice president and general manager of joint programs at Oshkosh Defense, said: ‘The JLTV programme is providing our soldiers and marines with the world’s most capable light tactical vehicle.

‘We have begun delivering low rate production vehicles to the army and marine corps for government testing in environments around the country and we have been pleased with its performance thus far.’
