Oshkosh Defense Showcases JLTV at Modern Day Marine
OSHKOSH, Wis. (Sept. 22, 2015) — Oshkosh Defense, LLC, an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE: OSK) company, will be displaying the newest member of the Marine Corps vehicle fleet, the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV), at Modern Day Marine in Quantico, Va. September 22-24, 2015. The Oshkosh JLTV represents the next generation of light tactical vehicles with unmatched protection, off-road mobility, reliability and modularity – at an affordable cost.
“Marines are a go anywhere, do anything force and they need a transportable vehicle that supports the most demanding missions and gets them back home safely,” said USMC Colonel John Bryant (Ret), senior vice president of defense programs for Oshkosh Defense. “The Oshkosh JLTV provides Marines with the protection of a light tank, the underbody protection of an MRAP, the network capability of a mobile command center and the off-road mobility of a Baja 1000 racer. Marines have never before had this much capability in a light vehicle.”
