Oshkosh Defense will showcase its JLTV solution – the Light Combat Tactical All-Terrain Vehicle (L-ATV) – at the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) 2014 Annual Meeting and Exposition in Washington, D.C. 

“Oshkosh Defense is ready for JLTV production,” said U.S. Army Major General (Retired) John Urias, executive vice president of Oshkosh Corporation and president of Oshkosh Defense. “Based on my work with the Department of Defense, it’s clear that there is no substitute for experience when it comes to designing, testing, manufacturing and sustaining new military equipment. Lack of experience equates to risk for the program and the troops who depend on the equipment. We are very confident about producing high quality JLTVs on-schedule and on-budget because no other OEM has launched more successful tactical wheeled vehicle production programs than Oshkosh.” 

As demonstrated at the PRR and past Government contract reviews for the JLTV program, Oshkosh is ready to produce world class JLTVs on its established production line. In 2013, the company produced its JLTV EMD prototypes on an active and proven production line, right alongside its MRAP All-Terrain Vehicle (M-ATV), Family of Heavy Tactical Vehicles (FHTV), Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) and other platforms. Using lean processes, flexible assembly lines, an experienced workforce and rigorous quality checks, Oshkosh has successfully delivered a full range of military vehicles for decades. 

The Oshkosh L-ATV’s lightweight, compact design leverages 10 years of research and development, as well as lessons from decades of field operating experience. L-ATV merges key design elements of highly survivable combat vehicles and off-road tactical vehicles to operate in a range of threat levels and terrains.
