Oshkosh Defense was honored a $6.75 billion contract to work no less than 17000 new light trucks to supplant the US military’s maturing Humvees.
Their substitution is known as the unsuitably called the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle, or JLTV.
The new vehicles are relied upon to cost around $250,000 per unit and will eliminate every single existing Humvee throughout the following 25 years.
The JLTV is furnished with a GM Duramax 6.6-liter diesel V-8, and it can be equipped with a diesel-electric cross breed framework.
The JLTV has boundlessly overhauled covering contrasted with the Humvee and as per Oshkosh the underbelly gives assurance practically identical to a MRAP.
