Joint Light Tactical Vehicle
The Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) program is an Army-led, joint modernization program designed to replace a portion of Army and Marine Corps light tactical wheeled vehicle fleets while closing an existing gap in payload, performance, and protection.
The JLTV family of vehicles consists of vehicles capable of performing multiple mission roles and designed to provide protected, sustained, networked mobility for personnel and payloads across the full range of military operations in two variants and four mission package configurations:
general purpose, heavy-guns carrier, close-combat-weapons carrier, and a utility vehicle.
Close Combat Weapon Carrier
Heavy Gun Carrier
The Army Operating Concept highlights the future operational environment as unknown, unknowable, and constantly changing. As Soldiers and Marines find themselves operating in increasingly diverse environments, they need lean, capable, and expeditionary systems. With enhanced protection and improved maneuverability, transportability, maintainability, and connectivity to 21st century battlefield networks, JLTVs will expand the options available to commanders.
