M1038A1- Truck, Utility: Cargo/Troop Carrier, 1-1/4 Ton, 4x4, W/Winch

    NSN: 2320-01-371-9578

Differences: The only difference between the M998 and M998A1 cargo/troop carriers and the M1038 and M1038A1 troop/cargo carriers is that the M998/M998A1 do not have winches and the M1038/M1038A1 do.

Purpose Of The Vehicle: M998, M998A1, M1038 and M1038A1 cargo/troop carriers are used to transport equipment, materials, and/or personnel. The cargo carrier is capable of transporting a payload (including crew) of 2,500 pounds (1,134 kilograms). 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 also has a four-man crew configuration. The M1038/M1038A1 are equipped with winches. This feature permits recovery operations of similar vehicles.

    NSN: 2320-01-455-9593

Differences: The difference between the M998 and M998A1 cargo/troop carriers and the M1097, M1097A1, M1097A2, and M1123 are specifically designed  to accomodate a higher payload capacity. The M1123 and A2 models have new bumpers which make the vehicle slightly longer. A 9,000 lb winch is also available for the M1123 and A2 models as an option.

Purpose Of The Vehicle: M1097, M1097A1, M1097A2 and M1123 heavy variant cargo/troop carriers are used to transport equipment, materials, and/or personnel. The heavy variant troop carrier is capable of transporting a two-man crew and eight passengers. The heavy variant cargo carrier is capable of transporting a  payload (including crew) of 4,400 pounds (1,998 kilograms). The M1097, M1097A1, M1097A2, and M1123 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.

For higher payload capacity, the M1097, M1097A1, M1097A2 and M1123 are equipped with a reinforced 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 a modified gear ration.

M1121- Truck, Utility: TOW Carrier, Armored, 1-1/4Ton, 4x4

    NSN: 2320-01-956-1282

M1121 TOW Carriers are converted M966 TOW Carriers. There were never any M1121 TOW Carriers produced as new vehicles. The M966 TOW Carriers were converted based on a Modification Work Order (MWO)  9-2320-923-50-1 Modification Of The Improved Target Aquisition System (ITAS) High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV) M966.

In short, the electrical system of the M966 TOW Carrier was not sufficient to provide the power requirements for the TOW ITAS system. As a result, the M1121 modification program was implemented which upgraded the electrical system in an M966 TOW Carrier. Once the modification was completed, the M966 that was modified received a new Data Plate and became an M1121 TOW Carrier.

US Army HMMWV Replacement Plan

 Below is a listing of prioritization of HMMWV vehicles in the US Army. Legacy HMMWV vehicles (initial production configuration M998's, M1038's, M1025's, etc.) are now considered obsolete and are being phased out of service. M1151, M1152, M1165 and M1167 configurations are flooding Army inventories and freeing up the older models to fill existing shortages across the US Army Reserve and National Guard. Any that are deemed excess to US Army requirements are being sent to rebuild to be reconfigured. As a result of the emphasis on pushing the older configurations out of service, I will spend the next few months trying to complete photo walk-arounds of M998's, M1038's, M1097's, M1025's etc. as their days are literally numbered. 

 

HMMWV Variants

M1151/52/65 Series HMMWV

M707 STRIKER also known as M707 KNIGHT HMMWV

The M707 Striker is a M1025A2 HMMWV with

The M707 Striker HMMWV's were typically assigned to a 'COLT' (Combat Observation Lasing Team).

The M707 Striker/Knight fire support vehicle is a M1025A2 HMMWV based system that provides for efficient fire support planning, direction, controlling, target designation, and night observation for both heavy and light forces. The HMMWV had a modified cupola designed to accept the Ground Vehicular Laser Locator Designator (G/VLLD). Other improvements to both vehicles include the addition of the lightweight computer unit (LCU) and the hand-held terminal unit (HTU). The initial systems fielded used the outdated and unsupportable GVLLD as its sensor to locate and designate targets. All systems were then upgraded with the

The M707 Knight w/FS3 provides sensor parity (2d Gen FLIR optics) between maneuver platforms and fire support platforms. The Knight w/FS3 exceeds the 5km night designation range ORD requirement, which is twice the capability of the AN/TAS-4 on the obsolete GVLLD. Knight w/FS3 helps bridge the sensor capability gap by providing fire supporters with a 2d Gen FLIR optic (LRAS 3) and a Laser Designation Module (LDM), which greatly enhances their capability to locate and designate targets. The sensor capability will be greatly enhanced by the modification of the FS3 on the M707 Knight. The Knight w/FS3 has 5x the range capability of the Knight w/GVLLD. The Knight w/FS3 also exceeds the 5km night designation ORD requirement, in which the Knight w/GVLLD achieves a <2km night designation range.

M1027 UP-ARMORED HMMWV (UAH)

 The following quote is from the submitter of the two photographs below, Hans-Hermann Buhling. "The designation M1027 is indeed a little mystery. All my sources tell that the first UAH was named M1109. I attach a pic of the vehicles sign as seen on the Armed Forces Day show back in 1998 at the 1st ID barracks in Wuerzburg, Germany.

I have also found an on-line DoD budgeting document that references an M1027 GLLD Carrier. You can see the document at this link:

TRUCK, UTILITY: UP-ARMORED CARRIER, 4x4, M1116

I came across discussion of this variant on AM Generals website. It states that the M1116 is a modified version of the M1114 used specifically by the Air Force.

Here is some additional information from BAE Systems (Armor Holdings) website:

"The M1116 Up-Armored HMMWV is used by the U.S. Air Force for Security Forces and Civil Engineering missions plus EOD and Base Recovery After Attack missions. This versatile, armored light tactical wheeled vehicle system features a gunner protection kit, mechanized turret traversing mechanism, expanded rear compartment and added underbody M67 grenade fragmentation protection"

 

TRUCK, UTILITY: UP-ARMORED CARRIER, 4x4, M1145

  The M1145 Up-Armored HMMWV offers all of the ballistic, blast and fragmentation protection of the US Army and USMC M1114, yet specifically designed to allow US Air Force Air Support Operations Squadrons (ASOS) to operate in the same environment as their US Army counterparts. The M1145 UAH offers perimeter ballistic protection, overhead burst protection, IED protection, mine blast protection, and 'white glass' transparent armor.

TRUCK, UTILITY: EXPANDED CAPACITY, ITAS/TOW, CARRIER M1167

The M1167 HMMWV is the TOW missile carrier variant of the M1151A1/B1 HMMWV. The M1151P1 HMMWV was used as the basis for the M1167 ITAS/TOW HMMWV.

The M1167 consists of the M1025A2 body; a full armor package known as the Integrated Armor Package (IAP) with B1 kit; an air conditioning system; and the M1113 Expanded Capacity Vehicle (ECV) heavy chassis. The vehicle is equipped with the ITAS/TOW missile launcher mounted on the roof of the vehicle with the TOW Gunner Protection Kit (TGPK), Far Target Locator (FTL), six (6) TOW missiles, a secondary weapon, lithium batteries (to meet the dismounted requirements of the ITAS/TOW), a battery charging device and a cargo bed missile rack.The TGPK (TOW Gunner Protection Kit) allows for full use of the ITAS with secondary weapons and allows TOW missile firing. It provides better protection with no open holes in the TGPK unit and has a rear back shield that can fold down. The design of the TGPK is based on a U.S. Marine Corps design as used in the M1114 HMMWV.

The M1167 is used to transport and launch TOW missiles to defeat field fortified positions, Reinforced Urban Structures, and Main Battle Tanks. The weapons platform can be traversed 360 degrees and the launcher elevated to 20 degrees and depressed 10 degrees. The major components on the M1167 that are different from the M1151A1/B1 are the items added for the operation of the ITAS/TOW and described above. The M1167 gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) is 13,100 pounds.

The M1167 HMMWV serves as a weapons platform for the Close Combat Missile System – Heavy (currently known as the ITAS/TOW). The M1167 HMMWV provides an anti-tank, anti-material, and anti-structure operational capability that allows the Infantry Battalion to concentrate on decisive maneuvers by dismounted Infantry. It represents the primary precision close combat missile capability of the Infantry Battalion, capable of defeating any armored threat out to extended ranges. The M1167 provides protection for the force by use of its precision long-range missile capability to destroy enemy armor and material beyond the effective range of enemy weapons. This capability significantly enhances the Infantry Battalions and Reconnaissance Squadron’s flexibility and versatility across the range of military operations. The XM1167 mounts only one primary weapon, be it either an ITAS/TOW missile/launcher, an M2 0.50-caliber or a MK19 40mm and is capable of mounting one secondary weapon, either a M240 or M249 squad automatic weapon, at the same time.

This photo is of XM1167-2 (vehicle B) that went on to be type classified as the M1167.
