Foreign Military Sales of Joint Light Tactical Vehicles Increase in 2024, US Army Official Says

Joint light tactical vehicle

The U.S. military is seeing increasing demand for the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle from defense customers around the world, according to an official. 

Munira Tourner, product manager for systems integration at the U.S. Army’s Joint Program Office for Joint Light Tactical Vehicles, said her team is “knee deep” in facilitating JLTV foreign military sales. 

The JLTV is designed for protected mobility of personnel and payloads across the battlefield. It can also accommodate scalable armor additions to strengthen protection.

In fiscal 2023, the JPO assisted the sale of 172 JLTVs to six countries. Only seven nations in the world, aside from the United States, have acquired the vehicles.

Munira said her office will facilitate the sale of 1,200 vehicles to nine countries in fiscal 2024.

So far, only the first iteration of the vehicle is available for purchase, but Tourner shared that her team is already seeing letters of request for the upgraded version dubbed A2.

The first version of the military vehicle was manufactured by Oshkosh to replace the High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle or the Humvee, which has been in service for decades including during Operation Desert Storm in 1991.

AM General, the original builder of the Humvee, secured the contract to manufacture the A2.
