The Army has awarded Oshkosh Defense an $84.9 million contract for Joint Light Tactical Vehicles Family of Vehicles, the service announced last week.

Oshkosh won the initial contract for the JLTV in 2015 and has received three orders for the vehicles in the last two months, according to a press release from Oshkosh on Monday.

Collectively, the three orders are worth $730 million and call for the production of more than 2,000 JLTVs for nine different customers.

To date, Oshkosh has produced 19,000 JLTVs, company Vice President and General Manager of Joint Programs George Mansfield said in a statement Monday.

The contract has an estimated completion date of Aug. 31, 2024, according to the contract notice posted Feb. 3.

Oshkosh is competing for a follow-on production contract for the JLTV that could be worth up to $6.5 billion over 10 years. The Army plans to award that contract in the second quarter of fiscal year 2023, service officials have said.
