The JLTV solid shelter for the M1279 and M1289 trailer shelter is a new addition to the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) family that offers enhanced protection and comfort to military personnel operating in harsh environments. Miles and its partner, S4 Vehicle Solutions, are actively seeking units and command posts who would benefit from this new shelter.

The JLTV solid shelter is designed to provide a secure and additional space for military personnel operating in the field. It is built to withstand the rigors of combat and harsh environmental conditions, offering superior protection from the elements and enemy fire. The shelter is made from high-strength fiberglass materials and can be equipped with ballistics, advanced ventilation, and custom features to provide a comfortable environment for personnel.

The M1279 and M1289 trailer shelters are also designed to work in tandem with the JLTV solid shelter, providing additional functionality and storage space for personnel and equipment. The trailer is a 20-foot-long container that can be towed by the JLTV, providing a mobile workspace or additional space.

Military units and command posts that are interested in the JLTV solid shelter and trailer shelter can contact Miles Fiberglass and S4 Vehicle Solutions for more information on how to obtain them. 

The Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) is a military vehicle designed to replace the aging Humvee (High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle) used by the United States Army and Marine Corps. The JLTV is a versatile, highly mobile, and transportable vehicle that is designed to perform a wide range of mission sets.

The JLTV features advanced armor and mine-resistant technologies, making it more survivable than its predecessor. It is also equipped with advanced communications systems, situational awareness tools, and a robust power system. The vehicle’s modular design allows for a range of configurations, including two- and four-seat models, and it can be outfitted for a variety of missions, including combat, reconnaissance, and utility tasks.

The JLTV program was initiated in 2006 to address the limitations of the Humvee and to provide the military with a more capable and survivable vehicle.
