Lithuanian Armed Forces receive more JLTVs from US

By Defence Industry Europe

The Lithuanian Ministry of National Defence has announced the delivery of the final batch of 50 Oshkosh JLTV military vehicles from the United States, concluding the initial 2019 agreement for 200 vehicles.


With this delivery, the Lithuanian Armed Forces now fully operate all 200 JLTVs, marking a significant enhancement of their military capabilities.

In a strategic move to further bolster its defence fleet, Lithuania signed an additional contract in December 2022 for 300 more JLTVs. The deliveries for this new batch are set to begin in 2024, with some vehicles featuring the advanced Common Remotely Operated Weapon Station (CROWS) manufactured by Kongsberg.

This latest acquisition elevates Lithuania as the largest export customer of the JLTV, with a total order of 500 vehicles. Oshkosh, the manufacturer of the JLTV, has reported the production of over 20,000 units of these versatile military vehicles to date.
