Press Release, Oshkosh WI, 02 December 2023: Oshkosh Defense announced today that the Israeli Ministry of Defence (IMoD) has placed two orders for Oshkosh Joint Light Tactical Vehicles (JLTV) for the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF). A total of 75 JLTVs were purchased via Foreign Military Sale (FMS) and dozens more were purchased via Direct Commercial Sale (DCS).
“We are proud to support the Israeli Defence Forces with a fleet of protected and highly mobile Joint Light Tactical Vehicles,” said Tim Bleck, senior vice president of Oshkosh Corporation and president of Oshkosh Defense. “We’ve worked with the IMoD on a multitude of programmes for more than a decade, and we look forward to demonstrating our continued commitment to this partnership with the JLTV.”
Oshkosh Defense is the only manufacturer that can supply JLTVs through DCS, and will continue to support NATO, Allied, and Coalition Forces that want to modernise their militaries with the JLTV’s battlefield-proven payload, performance and protection for years to come.
Earlier in November, Oshkosh Defense received a $208 million order from the US Army for additional JLTVs, JLTV trailers, and associated kits as well as a $160 million order for JLTVs for international allies including Mongolia, Romania, North Macedonia, Slovenia and Slovakia.
