    Bradley all over again? How was a contract signed given the experiences during evaluation? Looks like a case of "this is what our donors have made, and are trying to sell, and if we don't sign, they'll stop being donors"?
    But a number of deficiencies were noted in a recent annual report published by the Director of Operational Test and Evaluation for the Defense Department. It provides an overview of Army, Navy and Air Force programs. The Army section contains two dozen systems with reviews and recommendations.
    The vehicle comes in two- and four-seat versions with four basic configurations — general purpose, utility vehicle, heavy guns carrier and close combat weapons carrier.
    The program plans to procure approximately 49,099 vehicles for the Army, 9,091 vehicles for the Marines, and 80 vehicles for the Air Force. That fielding will happen over the course of the next two decades for the Army and the next decade for the Marines.
    Like the M16, how many years of maintenance problems and fatalities will their be before the issues are sorted out?

    “Units cannot maintain the JLTV without support from the contractor field service representatives due to vehicle complexity, ineffective training, poor manuals, and challenges with troubleshooting the vehicle,” according to the report.
    The reliability-specific problems included engine wiring problems, flat and damaged tires and brake system faults.
    Overall, the JLTV will require more maintenance than the Humvee.

    German 1: Private Schnutz, I have bad news for you.
    German 2: Private? I am a general!
    German 1: That is the bad news.

      'He died who loved to live,' they'll say,
      'Unselfishly so we might have today!'
      Like hell! He fought because he had to fight;
      He died that's all. It was his unlucky night.

        Same happened me. Go to www.militarytimes.com and you'll see the article "Newly fielded JLTV is not operationally suitable" towards the bottom of the page.
