Oshkosh Defense LLC, an Oshkosh Corporation company, announced Thursday the production of the 20,000th Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV).
The production of the 20,000th JLTV is a testament to the tremendous capabilities of the Oshkosh team and their commitment to serve the U.S. Armed Forces by providing the most capable tactical wheeled vehicles.
“Just a little over two years ago, we were celebrating our 10,000th JLTV rolling off our production line, said Tim Bleck, Oshkosh Corporation Senior Vice President and President of Oshkosh Defense
“That means that despite a global pandemic, and some of the most severe supply chain challenges we’ve ever seen, we’ve continued to demonstrate that Oshkosh has what it takes to deliver the JLTV to the customer again and again,” he added.
Delivering vehicles on time and on budget has been a priority for the Oshkosh Defense team since winning the initial contract in 2015.
“The continued success of the JLTV program can clearly be credited to Oshkosh’s warm production line, optimized manufacturing processes, robust supply chain, and our world-class team,” Bleck concluded.
Oshkosh Defense awaits a decision from the Government Accountability Office (GAO) regarding its protest of the JLTV follow-on contract and its significant concerns regarding the evaluation of financial, technical, and manufacturing capabilities.
