STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich., 20 April 2008. General Tactical Vehicles has submitted its proposal for the Technology Development phase of the U.S. Army and U.S. Marine Corps Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) program.
GTV's offer for the JLTV maximizes survivability and optimizes power and payload. The approach focuses on commonality of systems and components along with modular armor, resulting in an agile vehicle system that will provide enhanced crew protection, increased cargo capacity, and transportability.
"Our JLTV provides America's Soldiers and Marines a vehicle with the strong performance, flexibility, protection and sustainability they need across the full range of missions, locations, and operational scenarios," says Don Howe, GTV's JLTV program director. "Our JLTV gives the armed forces the rapid deployability, reliability, networking capabilities, and survivability they need today and in the decades ahead."
General Tactical Vehicles applies proven technologies along with a modular design that will accommodate continuing advances in armor and vehicle systems.
"While it's a significant advancement in design, it's also affordable and practical," says Howe.
