Oshkosh Defense and its industry partners demonstrated an anti-tank weapon system on a joint light tactical vehicle during a test run at Redstone Arsenal, Ala.

The company said Monday it demonstrated the Javelin-guided munition and surveillance weapon system with the Northrop Grumman-made lightweight cannon. Raytheon and Lockheed Martin formed a joint venture to develop Javelin.

A Kongsberg remote weapon station facilitated control functions during the trial.

George Mansfield, vice president and general manager of joint programs at Oshkosh Defense, said the JLTV is a light vehicle geared to simultaneously maneuver in combat formations, haul critical weaponry and protect service personnel.

The demonstration was viewed by guests from the Department of Defense and allied nations.
