The US Army and Marine Corps have received seven Joint Light Tactical Vehicles (JLTVs) from BAE Systems.
The prototype vehicles, designed by BAE in partnership with Navistar Defense and ArvinMeritor, were handed over to the US Army and Marine Corps last week.
The mix of vehicles includes two JLTV Category A General Purpose vehicles, four JLTV Category B Infantry Carriers and one Category C Utility Carrier, BAE said.
The vehicles will undergo a 12-month rigorous test and evaluation as part of the JLTV technology development phase.
The lightweight JLTVs have been designed to act as combat vehicles for the armed personnel in strife-torn zones. They are equipped with advanced armour and feature a V-shaped hull to provide maximum crew protection.
