The Belgium Ministry of Defence has awarded Oshkosh Defense a contract for 322 Oshkosh Defense Command and Liaison Vehicles (CLV) for the Belgium Defence Forces.
The Belgian CLV is based on the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) platform from Oshkosh equipped with Belgian communication systems.
“The Belgian Defence opted for a worldwide competition in which “money for value” was the only criterion,” said Belgium MoD’s Director Land Systems Colonel Filip De Varé. “The CLV will be integrated in the CaMo program, an international partnership between the French and Belgian land forces.”
Traditionally procured via foreign military sales, the Belgian procurement marks Oshkosh Defense’s first large direct commercial sale of a JLTV-based vehicle. Belgium joins the United States, the United Kingdom, Lithuania, Slovenia, and Montenegro in choosing this vehicle.
