Oshkosh Defense, LLC will showcase its Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) at Eurosatory held from June 13-17 in Paris, France.
The Oshkosh JLTV is the next-generation light tactical wheeled vehicle that delivers unmatched protection, speed and off-road mobility over the most demanding terrain to safely transport soldiers during their missions.
“There is simply no comparison between the HMMWV and JLTV—our JLTV sets a new standard for light vehicle protection and off-road mobility,” said John Bryant, Oshkosh Corporation senior vice president and president of Oshkosh Defense. “The JLTVs that we are building today are the result of years of development and rigorous U.S. Government testing, which has resulted in the highest performance ever achieved in a light tactical wheeled vehicle.”
The combination of the JLTV’s powerful drive train and TAK-4i suspension enables soldiers to travel off-road at speeds that are 70% faster than today’s gold standard. Additionally, the TAK-4i can be raised and lowered using interior operator controls to maximize sea, air and land transportability. The JLTV can be air transported internally by a C-130, C-5, C-17 or externally by CH-47 and CH-53, and other aircraft with similar characteristics used by international militaries.
The Oshkosh JLTV has the latest technologies, as well as unprecedented protection. With the Oshkosh Core1080 crew protection system, every inch of the vehicle is designed to save lives during blasts, IED events, and other threatening situations. Core1080 is an occupant-centric, comprehensive systems engineering approach that considers every component and technology to protect the crew, optimize readiness and effectively complete every mission.
