Oshkosh Defense exhibits capabilities and expertise in tactical wheeled vehicles and integration of weapon systems at AUSA 2022.
Press Release, Oshkosh, 10 October 2022: As a globally recognised leader in the design and production of military vehicles and mobility systems, Oshkosh Defense LLC, an Oshkosh Corporation enters the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) 2022 Conference, held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington DC from October 10-12, showcasing its expertise in tactical wheeled vehicles and its successful expansion into the design, manufacturing, and integration of weapon systems.
Oshkosh Defense JLTV: Oshkosh will display a General Purpose Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) integrated with a Kongsberg Remote Weapon Station (RWS) and side mount Javelin. The JLTV is the only light tactical vehicle that is flexible enough to incorporate a multitude of weapons systems without sacrificing payload, performance, or protection. To date, Oshkosh has built over 18,000 JLTVs for the US military and its allies.
Stryker Medium Caliber Weapon System (MCWS): Oshkosh Defense will also showcase the Stryker integrated with a 30mm MCWS. Oshkosh delivered the first MCWS to the US Army’s Aberdeen Test Center (ATC) in August 2022, where the system will undergo Product Verification Testing (PVT). PVT testing will be completed in June 2023, with fielding to begin in July 2023.
“While unique in their missions and capabilities, every vehicle and system we design, build and deliver represents our ability to listen to the customer, understand their requirements, and deliver purpose-built solutions,” said John Bryant, Executive Vice President, Oshkosh Corporation and President of Oshkosh Defense. “With our proven manufacturing capabilities, experienced supply chain, and dedicated workforce made up of military vehicle experts, we understand the complexities of the modern battlefield and are deeply committed to the success of the Warfighter’s mission.”
Oshkosh Defense leadership will be available at AUSA to discuss the Oshkosh Defense JLTV and the Stryker MCWS as well as the company’s entire portfolio of vehicles, technologies, and integration capabilities.
