HUMVEE Driving Experience

For Spring 2018 I will be launching my new driving experiences. For £125 you will get to drive a real US Army military HUMVEE (from my private collection) off-road for 45 minutes.

The vehicles 6.2 litre, V8 diesel engine coupled with an automatic gearbox is every petrol heads dream to drive off-road! Up to 2 spectators can sit in the back for £10 per head.

I will be adding vouchers to the new online shop so you can buy the experience for yourself or make it a gift.

Develpoment of the HUMVEE Continued

The Humvee replacement process being undertaken by the U.S. military focused on interim replacement with MRAPs and long-term replacement with the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV).

The HMMWV has evolved several times since its introduction and was used in tactical roles for which it was never originally intended.

The military pursued several initiatives to replace it, both in the short and long terms. The short term replacement efforts utilized commercial off-the-shelf vehicles as part of the Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) program.

These vehicles were procured to replace Humvees in combat theaters.

The long term replacement for the Humvee is the JLTV which is designed from the ground up.

The Future Tactical Truck Systems (FTTS) program was initiated to make an analysis of potential requirements for a Humvee replacement.

Various prototype vehicles such as the MillenWorks Light Utility Vehicle, and the ULTRA AP have been constructed as part of this programs.

The JLTV contract was awarded to Oshkosh in August 2015.
