The order placed by Army Contracting Command – Warren includes the delivery of 30 JLTVs to the country of Montenegro under a foreign military sales agreement, Oshkosh Defense said Wednesday.

“The JLTV can accommodate over 100 different mission package configurations without sacrificing mobility or transportability,” said George Mansfield, vice president and general manager of joint programs at Oshkosh Defense.
