OSHKOSH, Wis., Feb. 15 (UPI) -- U.S. vehicle maker Oshkosh Defense says it has developed a utility variant of its Light Combat Tactical All-Terrain Vehicle.

The variant meets the requirements of the U.S. military's Joint Light Tactical Vehicle program for two-seat vehicles, it said, adding the base vehicle meets the requirement for four-seat vehciles.

"The landscapes and threats of tomorrow's battlefields are unpredictable and state-of-the-art equipment will be absolutely necessary to protecting lives and completing missions," said John Bryant, vice president and general manager of Joint and Marine Corps Programs for Oshkosh Defense.

"The Oshkosh L-ATV utility variant is the most technologically advanced, most mature JLTV solution for warfighters to complete transport missions on those battlefields."

Oshkosh's L-ATV utility variant is for hauling loads such as containers, pallets and break bulk cargo. It can be outfitted as a shelter carrier to carry standard shelters for communications systems, on-board electronics and for other functions.

Its payload capacity is more than 5,100 pounds.
