The Army today issued a long-awaited request for proposals for the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle program.

After three rounds of drafts, the final version formally kicks off the race between contractors Lockheed Martin, Oshkosh and AM General to begin producing an initial batch of 17,000 vehicles for the Army and Marine Corps.

"The final RFP ensures clarity in the program's request, incorporating updates primarily related to clarifying expectations about the delivery of specific requirements, while still allowing vendors to propose tradeable options in some areas," a service statement reads.
