In the US, began to prepare drivers for the cargo version of the JLTV


A new version of an armored vehicle for the US Armed Forces Joint Light Tactical Vehicle was spotted while training drivers at the Fort McCoy military base in Wisconsin. About this writes the website Defense Blog.


The new modification (UTL for short) is a two-door version, the first of its kind, specially designed for the transport of goods and sheltered shelters on a modern battlefield. There is enhanced protection against improvised explosive devices.

The publication, citing the press service of the base, reports that driver training for the latest version of JLTV in Fort McCoy began in May 2019.


The JLTV program is designed to replace obsolete Humvee throughout the United States armed forces. It is assumed that the JLTV is much more advanced than the previous generation vehicle, and its innovative platform has more reliable mechanics, diagnostics, maneuverability, maneuverability and wide potential for modernization.

The manufacturer, Oshkosh Corporation, promises that its development is adapted for air transportation using CH-47 and CH-53 helicopters, as well as C-130, C-5, C-17 and Airbus A400 aircraft.

      Yes, it was shown by the Second World War, beautiful “jeeps”, and the hard worker “Studebaker” on the battlefields showed their best side.

          Two boards a meter long, the width of the tire tread will save from the sand.
          On the Hammers, the doors are quickly removable, so they will replace the board.
          Even Tanks with BMPs get stuck in the mud, that's why many people have a log in the stern.

              Yes, no one will understand, those who were engaged in jipping will quickly figure it out.
              Some who fall into a stupor when something happens to the car. When they leave the asphalt.

                  By the way, what would rush along the steppe, the most normal car is the Porsche Kaen or the younger brother Voltz Tuareg, their suspension was set up thanks to Dakar, although the repair can get out a pretty penny.

      Looks like dimensions, and after all, few people can make a parallel parking, and there’s a herringbone parking.

      DOSAAF is, among other things, a school of real Heroes. In the USA, in my opinion, with their "sausage-dollar" interest, this is not understood no

        I did not pay attention. But from Ford, here you are right. Engine, if not mistaken 300 horses. 120 speed. Swedish armor. In the photo of the transmitted equipment, I counted 10 machines.

    Let's see how we behave on the battlefield.

    From the feeling, I think that it's still no better than the Tiger, despite the strong automotive traditions of the Yankees.)
