The Oshkosh JLTV: Coming Soon (propaganda vid)

I've always been curious about this vehicle in comparison to its competitors (especially the BAE and American General offerings which I viewed more favorably).

How did Oshkosh pump out such a high reliability rating when everyone was basically using the same engines?

Something seemed off with this thing.  Did they pick the best vehicle or are they awarding contracts to protect the manufacturing base?  Think about it like this.  AM General will have HUMVEE work for at least another decade or two.  BAE is probably going to win the ACV and do work for the Army.  Lockheed Martin has the budget gobbling F-35....Oshkosh was the only company that was probably gonna fold if they didn't win this contract.

I don't know if this is what happened...I'm just sayin'.
