Oshkosh Defense, LLC, an Oshkosh Corporation company, announced it has been awarded a $61.8 million modification from the U.S. Army Contracting Command, Detroit Arsenal to increase available trailer options under the current Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) Family of Vehicles contract from 32 to 3,541.

The JLTV-T was designed as an integral part of the JLTV Family of Vehicles, providing the same superior off-road performance and durability.

“When it comes to hauling mission critical equipment, a reliable trailer is just as essential as the vehicle it supports,” said George Mansfield, Vice President and General Manager of Joint Programs for Oshkosh Defense.

The JLTV-T features the following main characteristics:

  • 5 inch of wheel travel
  • 5,100 lb. payload
  • 60 inch fording capability
  • 70 MPH maximum speed
  • Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)
  • Compatible with legacy pintles on HMMWV, FMTV, HEMTT, LVSR, M-ATV, and MTVR
