Much of the reporting on the war in Ukraine and the rearmament of NATO has focused on major fighting platforms such as main battle tanks, artillery systems, and air defenses. There is intense demand for Abrams tanks, HIMARS rocket artillery, and Patriot air defenses. There is also a lot of interest in and sales of other military platforms, particularly tactical vehicles. One system that is popular not only in Europe but globally is the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle, or JLTV. With its enhanced survivability, greater payload, and advanced electronics, the JLTV was designed to replace older tactical wheeled vehicles such as the Humvee. Friends and allies have recognized what the U.S. military saw in the JLTV when they awarded the original production contract to Oshkosh: The JLTV is a flexible, survivable, and affordable platform that can support the needs of military forces across the spectrum of conflict. I have written more on this subject here.
