The 4-door Heavy Guns Carrier (HGC) JLTV will be equipped with the John Cockrill CPWS 2.0 turret and Northrop Grumman 25x137mm M242 Bushmaster chain gun (Oshkosh’ L-ATV for European customers, Lithuania orders JLTV).

The modular design of the Oshkosh Defense JLTV, which we’ve built over 16,000, can be adapted to dozens of military missions, from serving as battlefield ambulances to hosting antitank weapons, said George Mansfield, Vice President and General Manager of Joint Programs for Oshkosh Defense. The ability to easily integrate weapons that increase the JLTV’s firepower and lethality cost-effectively is yet another example of the vehicle’s flexibility and adaptability for next-generation warfare.

The Pratt Miller Defense EMAV on display is a tracked, autonomous vehicle developed for the Marine Corps Warfighting Lab (MCWL). The EMAV’s hybrid-electric powertrain is capable of silent watch and silent mobility and provides exportable power capability. Furthermore, with a 6,000 lb. payload capacity and flat rack, the EMAV is designed to support most logistics missions.

Oshkosh Defense’s advanced technology capabilities run the gamut from autonomous vehicles to hybrid-electric powertrains, said Pat Williams, Vice President and General Manager of U.S. Army and U.S. Marine Corps Programs for Oshkosh Defense. We partner with the U.S. Marine Corps and other customers to understand and analyze the challenges they face and explore solutions. This collaboration allows us to apply these next generation defense technologies and advanced systems to our vehicles in order to meet their evolving mission needs.

Oshkosh Defense leadership was available to discuss the JLTV and Oshkosh Defense JLTV-T, the Pratt Miller Defense EMAV, and the company’s entire portfolio of vehicles, mobility systems, and advanced technologies. Visit Oshkosh Defense at Modern Day Marine 2022 in booth #1400.
