Oshkosh Defense will showcase two variants of its Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) with next generation lethality and networking capabilities at the Association of the United States Army Conference 2017. The vehicles will be on display in Washington, D.C. from October 9-11, 2017.
“The Oshkosh JLTV is engineered to support a wide range of mission kits and weapon systems required for the modern battlefield,” said John Bryant, Senior Vice President of Oshkosh Corporation and President of Oshkosh Defense. “Our JLTV will replace existing light tactical vehicles with a platform that is flexible, scalable, and customizable for specific missions outside the wire. We are proud to be demonstrating this JLTV capability.”
The JLTV Family of Vehicles was designed with room for growth to provide Warfighters with next-generation protected mobility in the light vehicle class, while supporting advanced networking and increased fire power. The JLTV General Purpose vehicle on display in the Oshkosh booth is equipped with a Boeing Compact Laser Weapon System (CLWS), a Kongsberg Protector LW 30 Remote Weapon System (RWS) with a M230LF cannon, and a communications suite that includes a Thales VRC-111 and Thales VRC-121 VIPER.
