The US military’s Humvee has become an iconic vehicle over the years, and even though it has widespread admiration, the vehicle itself is old.
As a result, the military awarded the $6.7 billion contract to replace the Humvee to Wisconsin-based truck maker Oshkosh.
Oshkosh is expected to produce approximately 17,000 Joint Light Tactical Vehicles (JLTVs) over the course of the deal, which come in badass two- and four-seat variations.
If you need convincing as to why the JTLV will be a good replacement for the Humvee then check out some of the specs and pictures below:
- Core1080 Crew Protection System
- Mine resistance
- IED detection
- Bolt-on armor
- Optional turret and missile launch units
- Electronic suspension
- 70 percent faster than the best tactical wheeled vehicle on the market
