MR Modellbau has produced this resin rear bumper conversion set for use on Tamiya and Academy1/35th scale models. You can add the bumpers to M998's, M1025's, M1046's, etc. to represent an A2 variant of those vehicles. The rear bumper is also the most visible difference between an M998 and M1097 HMMWV.

Site member Jakub Baczar has submitted another HMMWV model to the site. This time he has built an M1042 Shelter Carrier based on an Italeri humvee kit with a scratch built shelter, modified trailer from Bilek and a scratch built power unit.

HMMWV In Scale has added a 92 photo walk-around of a PU-797A. This is a 5kw MEP-802A generator mounted on a trailer. This is commonly used to provide power to a HMMWV mounted shelter so that the HMMWV engine doesn't have to run continuously.

I have decided to add a HMMWV Cargo Section to the site. Although I have a ton of technical data to still add to the site, I felt images of common cargo items are important to HMMWV fans and model builders. The HMMWV Cargo page is a sub-page in the HMMWV features section.
Today I added images of US green water cans, US tan fuel cans, US brown fuel cans and commonly seen Rubbermaid brand insulated drink containers. The 'brown fuel can' page has 18 very detailed photos of the standard US fuel can.
More to come.

No matter where the Army deploys in the future, there will be roadside bombs, buried mines and other explosive threats that will require troops to travel in heavily armored vehicles.
Having accepted that reality, the Army has decided it will begin to phase out soft-skin Humvee trucks from combat inventories over the coming years, and will continue to rely on much heavier mine-resistant ambush protected (MRAP) vehicles, officials said April 12.
“For combat, we know the Humvee is no longer feasible,” said Army Maj. Gen. Tony Cucolo, director of force development for the deputy chief of staff, G-8.
