Oshkosh Defense Delivers Proposal for JLTV Production
OSHKOSH, Wis. (Feb. 10, 2015) — The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) is taking action to fill a critical capability gap in its tactical wheeled vehicle (TWV) fleet by advancing the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) program. Oshkosh Defense, LLC, an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE: OSK) company, submitted its proposal today in response to the U.S. Government’s Request for Proposal (RFP) for JLTV Low Rate Initial Production (LRIP) and Full Rate Production (FRP). Oshkosh’s JLTV proposal addresses the U.S. Army and Marine Corps’ need for a lightweight, highly-mobile, net-ready vehicle with unprecedented levels of protection for our nation’s Warfighters on the modern battlefield.
“Our troops deserve the best vehicle and technology our Government can provide, and no other company serves this mission more effectively than Oshkosh,” said U.S. Army Major General (Retired) John Urias, executive vice president of Oshkosh Corporation and president of Oshkosh Defense. “Our JLTV proposal reflects Oshkosh’s heritage of building high performance tactical vehicles, and an unparalleled commitment to providing our troops with the most capable and reliable JLTV at an affordable price.”
