Lockheed Martin, AM General may protest the US Army’s decision to award $6.7 billion contract to build first 17,000 production models of Joint Light Tactical Vehicle to replace Humvee fleet.
In separate statements, the companies expressed their anguish and did not rule out the possibility of challenging the US Army’s decision with the Government Accountability Office. Oshkosh won over Lockheed Martin and AM General in the multi-billion dollar contract.
“The Lockheed Martin JLTV Team was disappointed to learn that the US Army and Marine Corps did not select our JLTV,” the company said in a statement Wednesday.
“We believe we presented a very strong solution and await the customers’ debrief to hear more detail regarding the reasons behind this selection before making a decision about a potential protest,” it added.
“We are disappointed with the Government’s decision and continue to believe that AM General and our BRV-O vehicle are the right choice for the JLTV program, based on our best value offer which is backed by decades of LTV expertise and proven record as a trusted and reliable partner with the U.S. military,” a AM General said in a statement.
“Our BRV-O provides world-class survivability features to Soldiers and Marines while delivering unmatched vehicle payload and performance,” the spokesman said. “We are very proud of our team’s efforts and our BRV-O offering. At this time, we are reviewing the Government’s decision and are considering all available options.”
The contract is assumed to be worth over $30 billion to build as many as 55,000 JLTVs over a span of 25 years. The US Army and Marine Corps plan to replace a large portion of the legacy HMMWV fleet with a light tactical vehicle with superior protection and off-road mobility.
