Oshkosh Defense to Introduce JLTV to Special Forces Community at SOFIC 2019
OSHKOSH, Wis. (May 21, 2019) — Oshkosh Defense, LLC, an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE: OSK) company, will exhibit the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) for the first time to the special forces community at the Special Operations Forces Industry Conference (SOFIC) in Tampa, Florida May 21-23, 2019.
The Oshkosh JLTV will be outfitted with the Kongsberg Common Remotely Operated Weapon Station (CROWS) with Javelin Integration Kit (JIK) and .50 Caliber Machine Gun, showcasing the vehicle’s ability to carry a multitude of lethal weapons without sacrificing speed. The JLTV is the only lightweight vehicle that can maneuver with combat formations while supporting advanced networking and increased firepower. A combination of scalability and flexibility makes the JLTV uniquely suited for the unpredictable and evolving mission requirements for special forces.
“The JLTV is a scalable, modular vehicle that can accommodate a variety of terrain and package configurations for any mission,” said George Mansfield, vice president and general manager of joint programs for Oshkosh Defense. “The JLTV is a disruptive force multiplier that enables operators to scale-up or scale-down for a full range of military operations–from environmental and peacekeeping missions to high threat, hostile conditions.”
Armed with its payload capacity and a system integration-minded design, the JLTV can support increased lethality and outperform adversaries with a multitude of remotely operated weapon configurations including cannons, missiles, and advanced non-kinetic weapon systems for use against land and air threats.
Oshkosh Defense leadership will be available to discuss the Oshkosh JLTV and the company’s portfolio of vehicles, technologies and integration capabilities at SOFIC booth #512.
