Lockheed To Send Right-Hand-Drive JLTV to Australia
By BRADLEY PENISTON – Lockheed Martin plans to ship one of its prototype Joint Light Tactical Vehicle to Australia on June 23 — one in which the driver sits on the right side.
“It’s a mirror-image JLTV,” said Morri Leland, a Lockheed international business development director.
Australia, which is seeking to replace more than 1,000 vehicles, is funding part of the U.S.-led JLTV development effort. Officials there have not yet decided whether to buy the new vehicles.
