U.S. Military Vehicle Programs

For additional information about defense spending, military fleets, DoD Contracts and more, please visit our Procurement Section or the Defense Database.

Welcome to the U.S. Military Vehicle Programs section on AeroWeb. This section covers DoD Spending on major ground vehicles from FY 2011 to FY 2014 (starting October 1, 2013).

Below, you find DoD budget data for 24 ground vehicle programs, including tanks, combat vehicles, and tactical vehicles.

For each program, you can access information about total DoD spending on that program in FY 2011, FY 2012, FY 2013 and FY 2014 as well as the number of vehicles/systems purchased.

Our data tells you exactly how much was spent on each program, e.g. total spending on the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV), # of Medium and Heavy Tactical Vehicles purchased etc. By clicking on a program below, you access that system's profile - giving you access to general information about the vehicle/system (specs, engine, weapons/armament, mission/role etc.) and DoD budget data downloads for each program (so you can see the official spending documentation to verify the accuracy of our data and access even more info).

Note that our data may not in all instances match the numbers in the official DoD Major Acquisition Program Data Book, mainly due to the fact that we also include spending on modifications (to provide a more accurate view of how much is spent on each system). Therefore, we are convinced that the data provided below is more extensive, more accurate and more detailed than what is published by the DoD.
