Oshkosh Defense [OSK] has received a $127 million deal from the Army to continue delivering Joint Light Tactical Vehicles (JLTV), with the latest order covering 248 vehicles.
JLTVs under the new production contract covers deliveries to the Army, Marine Corps and the Department of State.
The company noted over 7,500 JLTVs have been delivered across the joint services since 2015.
Oshkosh most recently received a $407 million JLTV order in February to deliver 1,240 JLTVs to the Marine Corps, Lithuania and Slovenia (Defense Daily, Feb. 18).
The February deal arrived as the Army detailed plans to competitively award the follow-on JLTV production contract, with a focus on potentially driving down production costs to shift extra funds toward modernization.
JLTV was included among the Army’s second round of “night court” reforms, which will include stretching the procurement out by an additional three years and potentially proposing to split the procurement contract when the vehicle program is up for a follow-on deal in FY ‘22 (Defense Daily, Feb. 11).
