Abstract:

The primary mission of the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle JLTV is to provide protected, sustained, and networked light tactical mobility to the Joint forces, capable of worldwide deployment across the full spectrum of military operations and mission profiles under all weather and terrain conditions. The JLTV will be transportable over long distances within any theater of operations through numerous lift assets and options, from sealift and amphibious shipping to airlift both fixed and rotary wing and low velocity aerial delivery. It will provide mobility to reconnaissance units and direct fire in support of combat maneuver, with substantial payload for personnel, equipment, and supplies. The JLTV will support command, control, and communication in both stationary and on-the-move modes, enabling interoperability with Joint and Coalition forces in decentralized operations over extended ranges in complex and dynamic operational environments. System Description the JLTV Family of Vehicles is comprised of two variants based upon a common automotive platform, a two-seat Combat Support Vehicle CSV and a four-seat Combat Tactical Vehicle CTV, as well as a companion trailer. The two-seat CSV variant has a payload capacity of 5,100-pounds. The four-seat CTV variant has a payload capacity of 3,500-pounds.
