Oshkosh Defense Displays JLTV with Net Ready Capabilities at AUSA Global Force Symposium

Oshkosh Defense is displaying a JLTV with PROTECTOR LW 30 Kongsberg Remote Weapon Station which helps support increased lethality without compromising mobility or protection.

Oshkosh Defense LLC, an Oshkosh Corporation company, will showcase its fully integrated Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) at the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) Global Force Symposium on March 13-15 at the Von Braun Center in Huntsville, AL.

The JLTV on display is outfitted with the PROTECTOR LW 30, the latest member of the Kongsberg Remote Weapon Station product family. It is a derivative of the M153 Common Remotely Operated Weapon Station (CROWS), specifically designed to accommodate the Orbital ATK M230LF, 30 mm (x 113) DC driven (motor) cannon. This system display demonstrates the vehicle’s ability to support increased lethality without compromising its mobility, performance or protection. 

“The JLTV has been designed to keep pace with the fast-changing nature of today’s battlefield,” says Dave Diersen, Vice President and General Manager of Joint Programs at Oshkosh Defense. “Our JLTV provides a leap forward in performance and capability that can only come from a vehicle that is purpose-built for a spectrum of light vehicle missions.”

The JLTV Family of Vehicles was designed from the ground up to provide new levels of protected mobility in the light vehicle class, while supporting advanced networking, C4ISR suites and increased firepower. The JLTV is wired for current and future C4ISR systems to ensure the vehicle is ready-to-roll right off the production line.

Oshkosh Defense leadership will be available to discuss the Oshkosh JLTV, and the company’s full portfolio of Heavy, Medium, MRAP, Aircraft Rescue Fire Fighting (ARFF) and protected vehicles, technologies, integration capabilities and aftermarket solutions at AUSA Global Force Symposium in booth #1231.
