New book, 100 pages, approx 350 photos. The Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Truck (HEMTT) family of vehicles was developed in the 1970s. The truck manufacturer, Oshkosh Corporation, was chosen to provide cargo trucks, fuellers, load-handling system trucks, bridge transporters, and tactical fire-fighting vehicles, introduced into service in 1982. More recently, relatives of the HEMTT, the Palletised Load System and Logistics Vehicle System, in the US Army, have replaced the cargo variant of the HEMTT. In 2001, a refit programme was started - HEMTT Fleet Recapitalisation Programme in which individual units returned their vehicles to be rebuilt to zero miles, as new. As the programme matured, vehicles were also brought up to A2 standards. Vehicles covered in this book are: M977 Cargo Truck, M978 Fueller, M983A4 LET, M984 Wrecker, M985 Cargo Truck, M1120 LHSM1142 TFFT, M1158 HEWATT, M1977 CBT, M1075 PLS, M1076 PLST, MK48 LVS and MKR18 LVSR.
