M998 HMMWV Cargo Troop Carrier

1-1/4 Ton Utility Truck (High-Mobility Military Wheeled Vehicle)

NATO Stock Number (NSN): 2320-01-107-7155

The M998 variant of the HMMWV M998 Series of 1¼ ton trucks (high-mobility wheeled military vehicles) is considered the "base model". It is used to transport equipment, materials, crews and up to eight passengers. The M998 HMMWV can be easily re-purposed in the field for different roles. The M998 is an open aluminum body, canvas top, general-purpose tactical truck designed for use over all types of roads and in all weather conditions. Its high power to weight ratio, four-wheel drive and high ground clearance combine to give it cross-country mobility. The M998 series contains metric components and requires metric common and vehicle unique tools. It is equipped with a towing pintle for towing and tie-down/lifting eyes for air, rail, highway or ocean shipment. The M998 has facility for four doors which can be removed as required in the field. The optional doors are canvas over a metal frame. As a Cargo Carrier, the M998 looks like a two door pickup with a soft top roof over the two passenger cab. The rear can be open or covered with a low or high profile soft cover. A rear cargo curtain may also be fitted. In the troop version, bench seats over the rear fenders allow seating for eight troops who can be covered by the soft top. Alternatively, two conventional rear seats can be installed (four seats total) with a small pickup bed in the rear. A weapons mount can be installed and can use the same weapons as the M1025 or M1026. The passenger and cargo compartments can be covered. The M998 is un-armored.

HMMWV M966

M966 - TOW Carrier, Armored
High Mobility Military Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV)
NSN 2320-01-107-7153

HMMWV with four hard doors and a metal roof. The rear can be covered by a composite slant or square back to store 6 extra missiles. The doors are made of a fiberglass reinforced with a fibrous composite fitted with operable polycarbonate windows. The hood vents have baffles to prevent spall from damaging the engine. The windshield is bullet resistant. The tires use the runflat system. Contrary to popular belief, TOW carriers are only spall resistant and cannot withstand direct small arms fire. The roof has a hatch with a rotating circular weapons mounting ring and a TOW mount providing a 360 degree field of fire. TOW stands for Tube launched, Optically sighted, Wire guided. The operator uses the optical sight for targeting. The missile is launched from a tube, spooling out wires as it flies. The wires allow the operator to steer the missile in flight. Hence, as long as the operator tracks a target, the missile will follow. The TOW missile's shaped charge warhead is able to defeat all armor. The TOW gives infantry higher lethality against armor than the personal LAW with great mobility. The TOW launcher can be dismounted from the vehicle. M966s can also be deployed as AT teams. GVW of 8,200 lbs.
