The U.S. Army granted Oshkosh Defense a $216 Million order for 513 Joint Light Tactical Vehicles (JLTVs) and 1,152 trailers (JLTV-T) for the U.S. Army, U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy, and the Armed Forces of Montenegro, Brazil, and Lithuania.

According to Oshkosh Defense, the order announcement comes just a month before the follow-on contract proposals are due. The contract calls for more than 15,000 additional vehicles over five order years followed by five option years, extending the associated production through 2034. The contract is expected to be awarded during the first quarter of 2023.

To date, Oshkosh Defense has also built almost 17,000 vehicles and delivered them to over 50 locations worldwide.
