Oshkosh Defense will begin international deliveries of its Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) after it commences a U.S. Department of Defense Full Rate Production (FRP) decision in fiscal year 2019.
Earlier this year, the US State Department approved the sale of Oshkosh-manufactured JLTVs through a foreign military sales (FMS) procurement to satisfy the United Kingdom’s Group 1 requirement of the Multi Role Vehicle Protected (MRV-P) Programme.
This is the first FMS case to be initiated since Oshkosh was awarded the U.S. contract in August of 2015 to replace up to 16,901 U.S. Army and U.S. Marine Corps in-service High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWVs).
The U.K. MoD fleet of Oshkosh-manufactured vehicles would reach over 1,000 vehicles with future deliveries of Oshkosh JLTV vehicles, an Oshkosh release said today.
George Mansfield, Vice President and General Manager, International Programs at Oshkosh Defense said that the U.S. JLTV programme is currently in Low Rate Initial Production (LRIP) and is completing reliability and performance test activities as well as logistics supportability evaluations.
The programme anticipates a U.S. Department of Defense Full Rate Production (FRP) decision in fiscal year 2019. Any future international deliveries are expected to follow after U.S. FRP deliveries begin. “We defer MRV-P programme specifics like timing, quantities, and contractor requirements to the U.K. customer,” Mansfield concluded.
The JLTV base vehicle provides small arms and ballistics protection. With an add-on B kit, JLTV achieves MRAP levels of protection.
The JLTV can be air transported internally by a C-130, C-5 and C-17, or externally by CH-47 and CH-53.
The JLTV is built with the capability to serve as a mobile command center. The vehicle will allow interoperability and force multiplication between allied forces such as the Joint Expeditionary Force (JEF), on behalf of international organizations such as the UN or NATO.
