Oshkosh Defense, LLC will feature its Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) at the Special Operations Forces Exhibition (SOFEX), taking place May 10-12 in Amman, Jordan.
The Oshkosh JLTV is the next-generation light tactical wheeled vehicle with an unprecedented combination of protection, mobility, transportability, and net-ready systems integration that delivers the network capability of a mobile command center.
“The JLTV will replace a large portion of the aging up-armored High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWV) fleet to fill a capability gap in light vehicle fleets,” said Bill Mooney, regional vice president of Middle East and North Africa for Oshkosh Defense. “Our vehicle will give soldiers the next-generation light tactical vehicle with greater protection, transportability, and off-road mobility.”
Weighing less than 6,350 kg at curb weight, the JLTV maintains MRAP levels of protection. The JLTV uses the TAK-4i intelligent independent suspension system, the next-generation of Oshkosh’s advanced TAK-4 independent suspension system, to deliver 25 percent improved wheel travel while providing improved ride quality for soldiers.
Additionally, the TAK-4i can be raised and lowered using interior operator controls to meet sea, air, and land transportability requirements. The JLTV can be air transported internally by a C-130, C-5 and C-17, or externally by CH-47 and CH-53.
Based on the Oshkosh Light Combat Tactical All-Terrain Vehicle (L-ATV) platform, the Oshkosh JLTV is the US Department of Defense’s choice to replace the US fleet of up-armored HMMWV for the Army and Marine Corps. The Oshkosh JLTV has the latest in automotive technologies, as well as the Oshkosh Core1080 crew protection system, which is an occupant-centric, comprehensive systems engineering approach that considers every inch of the vehicle with respect to crew protection in the event of blast events.
