Oshkosh Defense has unveiled a Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) equipped with the Uvision Hero-120 Tactical System at the Modern Day Marine Expo 2019.

The exposition is taking place at Quantico Marine Corps Base in Quantico, Virginia.

The company has outfitted a two-door Utility JLTV with the Hero-120 short-range tactical system for the first time. The system is developed by Israeli firm Uvision.

Hero-120 can carry a 3.5kg warhead and has an endurance of 60 minutes.

Another vehicle on display is a four-door General Purpose JLTV equipped with the Javelin Integration Kit (JIK), LW30 Remote Weapon Station (RWS), and a Black Hornet Vehicle Reconnaissance System (VRS).

It is the first time the four-door JLTV will be equipped with the Black Hornet VRS.

Oshkosh Defense Joint Programs vice-president and general manager George Mansfield said: “As the military pivots its focus from counter-insurgency threats towards near-peer adversaries, so too must the industry.

“We designed the JLTV with the unpredictability of the future in mind, bringing the warfighter unprecedented lethality capabilities along with scalable levels of protection to meet virtually any mission need.”

The US Marine Corps’ (USMC) JLTV was declared ready for operational deployment last month.

The JLTV, which will replace the service’s ageing High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV) fleet, achieved initial operational capability (IOC) a year ahead of schedule.

The USMC is planning to increase its Approved Acquisition Objective (AAO) from 5,500 to more than 15,000.

Mansfield added: “We’re incredibly pleased to hear that based on their own evaluation, the USMC is now planning to field 15,390 JLTVs, replacing all HMMWVs in the Corps’ legacy fleet in a one-for-one swap.

“We will continue to work with both the US Army and the USMC to align and deliver against key military modernisation priorities.”
