The Oshkosh JLTV or Joint Light Tactical Vehicle is a newly developed Light Combat Tactical All-Terrain Vehicle, L-ATV, by the US military to replace the fleet of ageing HMMWV or HUMVEE utility vehicles. The JLTV’s main objective is to provide a higher level of protected mobility, in comparison to heavier M-RAP vehicles previously deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan, improving survivability in missions.
The M1278 JLTV GP is armed with a shielded, roof mounted M2 heavy machine gun turret. The vehicle can also be fitted with various remotely-controlled weapon stations, armed with the M2 12.7 mm heavy machine gun, or a lightweight 30 mm chain gun.
Various JLTV variants were developed to meet different roles on the battlefield including as utility, close combat weapons carrier, and general purpose configurations.
