John Bryant: Oshkosh Prepares for Joint Light Tactical Vehicle Production

Humvee1Oshkosh Defense is preparing data and models for the production of U.S. Army and Marine Corps Joint Light Tactical Vehicles, Breaking Defense reported Friday.

Sydney Freedberg Jr. writes John Bryant, senior vice president of defense programs at Oshkosh, said the company started work on the deliverables while the Government Accountability Office reviews a JLTV contract award protest.

“We want to make sure that the impact of the protest is minimal for our government customer,” Bryant told Breaking Defense.

Lockheed Martin protested the Army’s award of a potential $7 billion JLTV production contract to Oshkosh in August and expects GAO to hand down a decision in late December.

The Army and Marine Corps plan to buy as many as 55,000 Humvee replacement vehicles in the long term.
