Oshkosh Defense in Oshkosh, Wis., won its first major order for the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV), the U.S. military's next-generation light battlefield vehicle to replace the venerable Humvee. The U.S. Army Contracting Command in Warren, Mich., announced a $243.8 million contract modification to Oshkosh for 657 JLTVs and 25 trailers. The Oshkosh JLTV is a version of the company's Light Combat Tactical All-Terrain Vehicle. The JLTV program was delayed after Oshkosh rival Lockheed Martin protested the initial contract awarded last August. The program resumed last month after the protest was dismissed.
