Eurosatory is the perfect international venue to debut the JLTV A2 and demonstrate the improvements made to this incredible platform and how these will positively impact the Warfighter.

As we ramp up the program it’s also important for us to communicate to our customers the acquisition process, via Foreign Military Sales (FMS), for the JLTV A2 and being at this far-reaching show allows us to do that.

Jim Cannon, AM General President and CEO

The JLTV A2 Utility variant will be on display and will feature the deFNder Medium Remote Weapon Station from FN Firearms that is suited for self-defense, infantry fire support, and long-range combat missions. In addition to its ability to integrate defensive weaponry, the JLTV A2 has many significant improvements over the A1 platform. The A2 platform key features include improved fuel efficiency via upgraded transmission gear coding, enhanced lithium-ion battery that replaces the 2 current lead-acid batteries, enhanced corrosion protection to mitigate existing corrosion issues, and improved accessibility for easier maintenance.

The HUMVEE Saber, built off the iconic and battle proven HUMVEE platform, features an innovative cab design that provides increased levels of protection in the same vehicle footprint for a more rugged, agile, and protected vehicle.

In addition to the JLTV A2, AM General will also display the HUMVEE Saber, which combines the proven and battle tested HUMVEE Series 13 chassis with a new monocoque armored capsule delivering significantly enhanced crew protection and survivability. For Eurosatory, the company will feature a concept in collaboration with Hornet Defense, Aerovironment, Armorworks, and IMMI to showcase the platform’s flexibility to increase its defensive and offensive capabilities in addition to its revolutionary, patent-pending cabin design.

AM General representatives will be present to discuss not only the innovative vehicles on display, but also the wide variety of mobility solutions in their product portfolio. They will also provide in-depth information on the FMS procurement process, engineering and logistics services, award-winning global supply chain management, field service support, and equipment warranty support.
