The Strongest & Most Maneuverable Vehicles In The World
Heavy lifting is no problem for the U.S. Army's heavy-metal fleet. Army land vehicles can haul everything from payload trailers to M1 Abrams tanks.
Family Of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV)
FMTVs are primarily used for transporting personnel and equipment. Based on a common chassis, they require less maintenance than earlier models. FMTV configurations may vary by payload and mission requirements.
Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Truck (HEMTT)
HEMTTs are used to re-supply combat vehicles and weapons systems. These vehicles deploy quickly and can operate wherever the Army needs them, no matter what the climate conditions may be.
HIGH-MOBILITY MULTIPURPOSE WHEELED VEHICLE (HMMWV or Humvee)
The civilian Humvee's mystique is built on the maneuverability and versatility of the Army version. The HMMWV's high power-to-weight ratio, high ground clearance and four-wheel drive make it agile in the most difficult terrain. It can be configured as a troop carrier, armament carrier, shelter carrier, ambulance, TOW missile carrier or Scout vehicle.
M1070 Heavy Equipment Transport (HET)
It takes a powerful vehicle to haul an M1 Abrams tank. With a 70-ton payload and a load-leveling hydraulic suspension, the HET transports, deploys and recovers tanks as well as other heavy-tracked and wheeled vehicles.
Palletized Load System (PLS)
What does it take to pick up an 8 x 8 x 20 ft. payload trailer filled with battle gear and get it to our troops ASAP? A PLS vehicle. These self-contained systems load and unload combat-configured pallets from their flatrack cargo beds without the need for forklifts or additional equipment.
The Buffalo is a six-wheeled MRAP, equipped with a hydraulic arm used to clear explosives, such as mines and improvised explosive devices (IEDs).
