Executive Vice President, U.S. Defence, Chris Vanslager commented, “At AM General, we pride ourselves in our ability to meet our customer’s needs, which is why we are able to provide the U.S. Army with new, updated light tactical vehicles as well as support them by continuously improving the existing fleet and developing new technologies for the platform. Our M1152A1 HMMWVs provide the U.S. army with a robust and modern vehicle platform capable of performing in the toughest conditions anywhere in the world. The recent STS services contract award also provides us the opportunity to improve our product while closely working alongside our government partners to support the HMMWV.”
The M1152A1 is the single cab with open cargo area HMMWV version, which is improved with Integrated Armour Protection and may be used as a troop or cargo transport vehicle.
