I love it when the military get’s new equipment and for several reasons, the main one being that it helps our troops get to and from, a hostile environment quickly and safely and the new Joint Light Tactical Vehicle from OSHKOSH DEFENSE certainly does that. I only wish that I was young again, so that I could use some of the new equipment like the JLTV. Oh well, I guess I’ll wait for the civilian model to come-out in a couple of years.
Here’s what the folks at OSHKOSH DEFENSE have to say about the JLTV:
The Oshkosh Defense® Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) is designed for never-before-achieved speed, power and protected mobility outside the wire. From its unrivaled TAK-4i™ intelligent independent suspension system* to scalable levels of protection and complete plug and play C4ISR capability – Oshkosh JLTV is the go-anywhere, do-anything light tactical vehicle.
Featuring unprecedented performance with the TAK-4i™ intelligent independent suspension system*, the Oshkosh JLTV quickly adjusts to achieve diverse transportability needs – by air (CH-47 and CH-53 helicopters; C-130, C-5, C-17 and A400 Cargo fixed-wing aircraft), land and sea. And it’s ready on arrival, giving troops the reliability and performance needed for harsh battlefield environments.
When vehicles are on the technical edge, crews can focus on the mission and engage evolving threats with confidence. We combine a proven history of world-class Tactical Wheeled Vehicle (TWV) design with extensive C4 systems integration capabilities; giving fleets the flexibility to expand and reconfigure components in the field, which eliminates cost, time and risks associated with vehicle disassembly.
