BUCHAREST (May 18, 2022) — Oshkosh Defense, LLC, an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE: OSK) company, will display a Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) and a JLTV trailer (JLTV-T) at the Black Sea Defense Aerospace and Security (BSDA) Conference 2022. The vehicles will be part of Oshkosh Defense booth #A807 in the Romaero Complex in Bucharest, Romania from May 18-20, 2022.
The 4-door Heavy Guns Carrier (HGC) JLTV will be fully outfitted with the Elbit 12.7mm Overhead Remote-Controlled Weapons Station, Beth El CBRN (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear) collective protection system, WisPr intercom and GenAirCon systems by IDE and Genasys Long Range Acoustic Device – LRAD-450XL. The JLTV-T will have an IDE HGT20K 30 hybrid generator.
Oshkosh Defense has over a decade of proprietary experience in designing, building, and delivering the JLTV, which provides unprecedented levels of off-road mobility, survivability, and hosted firepower on a light tactical vehicle platform. International interest in the Oshkosh Defense JLTV continues to grow, with orders or commitments from several NATO, Allied, and Coalition partners, including Belgium, Montenegro, Slovenia, Lithuania, Brazil, Romania, and North Macedonia. To date, Oshkosh has built over 16,000 JLTVs for the U.S. military and its allies.
“Oshkosh Defense is proud to support NATO allies that are looking to modernize their Armed Forces and protect their soldiers,” said John Lazar, Vice President and General Manager, International Programs, Oshkosh Defense. “As international interest in the JLTV continues to grow, we will work with our network of industry partners that contribute their own best-in-class expertise. Together, we provide a tailored JLTV solution that is designed to defeat emerging threats with flexibility and room for growth to accommodate evolving mission requirements.”
Among recent international milestones:
- Oshkosh Defense received a $152 million order to supply JLTVs to U.S. military and NATO allies Lithuania, North Macedonia, Slovenia and Romania
- Both the Lithuania’s Armed Forces and the Slovenian Minister of Defense held JLTV acceptance ceremonies last year
