“The JLTV has been designed to keep pace with the fast-changing nature of today’s battlefield,” said Dave Diersen, vice president and general manager of Joint Programs at Oshkosh Defense.
“Our JLTV provides a leap forward in performance and capability that can only come from a vehicle that is purpose-built for a spectrum of light vehicle missions.”
The JLTV Family of Vehicles was designed from the ground up to provide new levels of protected mobility in the light vehicle class, while supporting advanced networking, C4ISR suites and increased firepower.
The JLTV is wired for current and future C4ISR systems to ensure the vehicle is ready-to-roll right off the production line.
Oshkosh Defense leadership will be available to discuss the Oshkosh JLTV, and the Company’s full portfolio of Heavy, Medium, MRAP, Aircraft Rescue Fire Fighting (ARFF) and protected vehicles, technologies, integration capabilities and aftermarket solutions at AUSA Global Force Symposium in booth #1231.
