OSHKOSH (WLUK) -- The U.S. Army has placed another $100.1 million order for vehicles from Oshkosh Defense.

The order calls for 258 Joint Light Tactical Vehicles and accessories.

“From a scheduling perspective, the JLTV program is on track. We are currently in Low Rate Initial Production (LRIP) and have delivered over 1,000 vehicles since October 2016,” Dave Diersen, vice president and general manager of joint programs at Oshkosh Defense, said in a news release. “The initial LRIP vehicles are undergoing a spectrum of government testing, and soldiers and Marines will begin receiving JLTVs for operational use in (the 2019 fiscal year).”
