Oshkosh Defense recently unveiled its L-ATV Ambulance at the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) Global Force Symposium in Huntsville, Ala.
The ambulance enables Army medics and Marine corpsmen to keep up with the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) while also offering protection for medical personnel and wounded warriors as they move to, through and away from combat.
“The L-ATV Ambulance is the next generation of ambulance vehicles, designed specifically to protect wounded Warfighters without sacrificing the speed and mobility needed to keep up with JLTVs on the battlefield,” George Mansfield, vice president and general manager of Joint Programs, said. “In addition to its ability to protect and maneuver with the JLTV in combat operations, the L-ATV Ambulance has the flexibility and payload capacity medics require to transport life-saving equipment, allowing them to safely and efficiently perform their operations on the move.”
Oshkosh Defense official said the vehicle can travel off-road at JLTV speeds, the improved ride quality enables medics and corpsmen to render medical aid while transporting the wounded to combat support hospitals and the L-ATV Ambulance’s rear cab area can hold four litters, up to eight seated patients or a combination of the two.
