					High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV)
(M998 Truck)

The High Mobility Multi-purpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV) is the replacement vehicle for
the M151 series jeeps. The HMMWV's mission is to provide a light tactical vehicle for
command and control, special purpose shelter carriers, and special purpose weapons platforms
throughout all areas of the modern battlefield. It is supported using the current logistics and
maintenance structure established for Army wheeled vehicles. The HMMWV is equipped with a
high performance diesel engine, automatic transmission and four wheel drive that is air
transportable and droppable from a variety of aircraft. The HMMWV can be equipped with a
self-recovery winch capable of up to 6000 pound 1:1 ratio line pull capacity and can support
payloads from 2,500 - 4,400 pounds depending on the model. The HMMWV is produced in
several configurations to support weapons systems; command and control systems; field
ambulances; and ammunition, troop and general cargo transport.
LTV HMMWV M998-series multipurpose wheeled vehicle variants include:

              M998 cargo/troop carrier without winch

The HMMWV is the world standard in light military trucks. It is lightweight, high performance,
four wheel drive, air transportable & droppable, land mobility system. The family includes
utility/cargo, shelter carrier, armament carrier, ambulance, TOW missile carrier and scout-
reconnaissance configuration. Payload varies by body style ranging from 1920 lbs on the 4 litter
ambulance to 5300 lbs on limited availability Expanded Capacity variant, but is generally in the
5/4T range. A basic armor package is standard on the Armament and TOW missile carrier
models. A more heavily armored, or Up-Armor HMMWV, is now being produced in limited
quantities, primarily for the Scout Platoon application. Special supplemental armor versions have
been developed for USMC requirements; unique model numbers designate these configurations.
Primary function: The HMMWV provides a variety of wheeled vehicle platforms. These are
cargo/troop carrier, armament carrier, TOW missile system carrier, shelter carrier and two
ambulance variants (2- and 4-litter). The HMMWV will also be the prime mover for the
AN/TRC-170 Radio Digital Terminal and the Pedestal Mounted Stinger System.

                                         M998

                                         The M998, M998A1, M1038 and M1038A1
                                         HMMWVs are cargo/troop carrier configurations of the
                                         HMMWV family. The vehicles are equipped with basic
armor and used to transport equipment, materials, and/or personnel. The cargo carrier
configuration is capable of transporting a payload (including crew) of 2,500 pounds and the
troop carrier is capable of transporting a two man crew and eight passengers. Both use a troop
seat kit for troop transport operations. The cargo/troop carrier can also be configured in a four
man crew configuration. The vehicles can climb 60% slopes and traverse a side slope of up to
40% fully loaded. The vehicles can ford hard bottom water crossing up to 30 inches without a
deep water fording kit and up to 60 inches with the kit. The M1038, M1038A1 are equipped with
the self-recovery winch which can also be used to recover like systems. The M998A1 and
M1038A1 models have the latest modifications applied to the vehicles.

personnel, like the M998/M1038 series, except with a higher payload capacity. The cargo carrier
is capable of transporting a payload (including crew) of 4,575 poundsand the troop carrier is
capable of transporting a two man crew and eight passengers. Both use a troop seat kit for troop
transport operations, a 200 ampere umbilical power cable to power shelter equipment, and
stowage racks for ammunition and equipment. To accommodate the higher payload capacity, the
vehicles are equipped with a re-inforced frame, crossmembers, lifting shackles, heavy duty rear
springs, shock absorbers, reinforced control arms, heavy duty tires and rims, and a transfer case
and differential with modified gear ratio. The vehicles can climb 60% slopes and traverse a side
slope of up to 40% fully loaded. The vehicles can ford hard bottom water crossing up to 30
inches without a deep water fording kit and up to 60 inches with the kit. The M1097A1 is

water fording kit and up to 60 inches with the kit. These configurations of the HMMWV are not
equipped with the self-recovery winch. The M996A1, M997A1 and M1035A1 models have the
latest modifications applied to the vehicles.



                                         M1109/M1114

                                        The M1109 and M1114 HMMWVs are an Up-Armored
                                        Armament Carrier configuration of the HMMWV
                                        family. The vehicles are equipped with additional armor
                                        both on the sides and underneath to protect the crew
                                        from small arms ammunition and mines. The weapon
                                        mount, located on the roof of the vehicle, is adaptable to
                                        mount either the M60, 7.62mm machine gun; M2 .50
caliber machine gun; or the MK 19 Grenade Launcher. The weapons platform can be traversed
360 degrees. This confirguration of the HMMWV is equipped with the self-recovery winch.

The Up-Armored HMMWV is designed to conduct reconnaissance and security operations as its
primary function. Up-Armored HMMWVs are organic to the scout platoons of the armored,
infantry, and mechanized infantry battalions. Up-Armored HMMWV-mounted scouts enhance
the capability of scout platoons to provide accurate and timely information about the enemy and
the area of operations.

During reconnaissance operations, the scouts provide the commander with a mobile
reconnaissance platform to perform detailed route, zone, and area reconnaissance; prevent
surprise by enemy forces; and help retain the freedom to maneuver. The speed, mobility, and
stealth of the Up-Armored HMMWV also allows the scout to extend the depth of his
reconnaissance, providing increased security and additional time and maneuver space for the
commander. Due to its small signature relative to the Cavalry Fighting Vehicle (M3), the Up-
Armored HMMWV provides the stealth necessary to conduct detailed reconnaissance in areas
where contact with the enemy is possible. This information is rapidly reported to higher
headquarters through secure radio means or by physical delivery (particularly during periods of
reduced electronic communications).

Security operations are also significantly enhanced by Up-Armored HMMWV-mounted scouts.
In screen missions, scouts operating independently, or in conjunction with other reconnaissance
elements, will be used to establish observation posts to the front or flank of the maneuver force,
patrol between observation posts, and cover gaps between forces. In rear areas, Up-Armored
HMMWV-mounted scouts enhance security by patrolling primary lines of communication,
providing threat early warning to rear area units, and reconnoitering potential threat landing and
drop zones.
