Lockheed Martin will display their Joint Light Tactical Vehicle, or JLTV, at the U.S. Army Strong Zone outside the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas on Saturday. The proposed vehicle would replace the Humvee as the standard vehicle of the U.S. Army and Marine Corps.

Two separate models of the JLTV will be showcased at the U.S. Army Strong Zone, which is a 129,000 square foot interactive display area featuring some of the Army’s most elite technology and assets. The event is part of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl at the Alamodome.

Lockheed is one of nine bidders competing for a Defense Department contract to be awarded in 2015. The DoD will order 55,000 vehicles to replace its Humvees. AM General and Oshkosh are some of the other companies vying for the contract.

The JLTV is almost 18 feet long and nearly eight feed wide, with a curb weight of 14,000 pounds. It tops out at over 70 mph.
