The Department of Defense (DoD) is acquiring two new tactical wheeled vehicles (TWV): the Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) All Terrain Vehicle (M-ATV) and the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV). The $12.5 billion M-ATV is for use in Afghanistan; JLTV is the future replacement for vehicles like the High Mobility Multi-purpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV). This report assessed: (1) DoD's progress in rapidly acquiring and fielding M-ATVs; (2) JLTV's expected features and cost compared to other TWV; and (3) the extent to which the current plans for M-ATV and JLTV are consistent with the services' TWV investment strategies. Includes recommendations. Charts and tables. This is a print on demand edition of an important, hard-to-find publication.In developing the M-ATV acquisition strategy, lessons learned from the acquisition of MRAPs in Iraq were applied. Like the earlier MRAPs, the M-ATVs did not require technology development, a key factor in the programa#39;s success. ... by the Army and Marine Corps, JLTV is expected to provide protection levels that are comparable to the M-ATV but without loss of payload or automotive performance.
