From that very article: But the US Army is quick to stress that the JLTV will not be a like-for-like replacement. "It's important to remember that JLTV is not a one-for-one replacement of the HMMWV... the HMMWV will remain with us for many years to come, filling several missions outside of a full-spectrum threat environment, and I'm confident it will provide useful service in those roles," says Davis. and With thousands of Humvees still in the US inventory - a total of 281,000 were built by AM General - and cost pressures affecting several acquisition programmes including the JLTV, a fleet of autonomous Humvees could continue the vehicle's legacy for many more years to come.
