General Tactical Vehicles Delivers Proposal for JLTV EMD Phase

The General Tactical Vehicles (GTV) team of General Dynamics Land Systems and AM General today delivered our proposal for the Engineering, Manufacturing and Development (EMD) Phase of the U.S. Army and U.S. Marine Corps Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) program to the U.S. Army TACOM Life Cycle Management Command in an EAGLE vehicle – our ready-now offering for the JLTV requirement.

The JLTV EAGLE is a reliable, operationally cost effective and low-risk solution for the JLTV requirements. The GTV JLTV EAGLE is a combat proven vehicle optimized for the U.S. Army and the expeditionary forces of the U.S. Marine Corps.

GTV’s JLTV EAGLE provides the U.S. Warfighter with unparalleled protection with its Double V Hull technology. By restoring balance to the “Iron Triangle” of protection, payload and performance, the GTV JLTV EAGLE fills tactical mission expeditionary requirements affordably.

“GTV understands the urgency and criticality of providing the Warfighter with an operationally effective, survivable, and suitable JLTV solution. With the GTV JLTV EAGLE, we offer a modified non-developmental, low-risk vehicle with inherent manufacturing readiness that is built for program success and an accelerated path to production. We are on the ground and running,” said Mark Roualet, Chairman of the GTV Board of Directors. “We have a team with unparalleled experience that is offering a mature, fully transportable and highly reliable solution that is ready now. We have taken a tremendous vehicle and made it better – a combat proven platform, optimized for the U.S. Soldier and U.S. Marine.”

Roualet added, “The GTV approach is about accountability, ownership, discipline, focus, speed, and commitment. This commitment extends to schedule, meeting cost requirements, and delivering high quality equipment to Soldiers and Marines.”
