Check out this video comparison of the Humvee and the Oshkosh light tactical vehicle. The Joint Light Tactical Vehicle, sometimes abbreviated as JLTV, is light armored vehicle for the US military built to replace the Humvee, it is the Oshkosh L-ATV.
The predecessor of the JLTV, the Humvee, came into service in 1985, and was used during the Cold War. Consequently, asymmetric warfare was not foreseen in its objectives. It is therefore vulnerable to improvised explosives and sniper bullets (e.g. in Iraq). Therefore, in 2005, the replacement of Humvee is requested by the US government. The JROC approved the JLTV program in November 2006.
In 2012, three candidates are selected: the prototype of Lockheed Martin, AM General and Oshkosh Corporation. Check out this video to find out more about the latest Oshkosh tactical vehicle. What are your thoughts about this kind of light armored vehicle?
