The military's four new Humvee replacement Joint Light Tactical Vehicles are not ready to be deployed due to 'safety issues, being difficult to maintain and the doors don't open properly'

The military reported test results of it's four Joint Light Tactical Vehicles (JLTVs)
They were all found to be 'not operationally suitable' for use on the battlefield
The Close Combat Weapons Carrier in particular was 'not operationally effective'
The findings revealed problems including inaccurate health monitoring systems, doors opening, difficulty loading missiles and not enough cargo space
The military plans to order 55,000 JLTVs for use by the Army, Marines Corps and Air Force, which would partially replace their Humvees
The military intended to start rolling out the JLTVs to the branches in early 2019 .

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I did a little research on this, and the company which manufactures these miserably created vehicles, and that company is: Oshkosh Corporation.

They make just under a billion dollars yearly.

IF I were the President of a company which consistently produced such dreck, I would apologize immediately to the military brass who ordered it, pick these up at Oshkosh's expense, and get these pieces of equipment made to work, with a huge charge against the company by the military.

This is a huge embarrassment for the company, and not one of these Carriers should have gone out before thorough testing.

These are the kinds of horrific manufacturing practices with which the US military should not have to put up.
