Yesterday, the Army and the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) program office invited a bunch of journalists up to the US Army Aberdeen Proving Grounds in Maryland to enjoy the sweltering temperatures and take test rides in the three remaining competitors in the running for the lucrative JLTV contract.
In October 2008, the Army awarded three 27-month Technology Development contracts to General Tactical Vehicles, a joint venture between General Dynamics and AM General; BAE Systems; and Lockheed Martin to develop prototypes of the vehicle for testing. Each company was present at Aberdeen, and following are some pictures Ares took of the event.
