[December 19, 2015]  WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Lockheed Martin Corp <LMT.N> on Friday filed for a temporary injunction seeking a stop-work order on a $6.75 billion contract awarded by the U.S. Army to Oshkosh Corp <OSK.N> for 17,000 new armored vehicles to replace the Humvee, which Lockheed is challenging in federal court.

Lockheed on Thursday said it had filed a federal complaint over the handling of the contract by the Army, and court documents posted on Friday showed it had also filed a motion seeking the injunction.

"We look forward to having our Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) complaint heard, and all evidence evaluated, by the Court of Federal Claims," Lockheed said in a statement.

No comment was immediately available from the Army, which lifted a stop-work order earlier this week after the Government Accountability Office dismissed a protest filed against the contract by Lockheed.
