Developed for the U.S. Marines, ROGUE Fires is an unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) that leverages the JLTV’s extreme off-road mobility and payload capacity and Oshkosh’s advanced autonomous vehicle technologies to support Ground-Based Anti-Ship Missile (GBASM) operations.

Designed to operate in both teleoperated and fully autonomous modes, ROGUE-Fires serves as a versatile launch platform capable of handling various weapon payloads.

In April 2024, Oshkosh was awarded a delivery order valued at $40 million for the procurement of ROGUE-Fires to be used in the Navy/Marine Expeditionary Ship Interdiction System.

Oshkosh announced the contract to begin low-rate initial production from the Marine Corps Systems Command in October 2023.
