Develpoment of the HUMVEE Continued

After Operation Restore Hope in Somalia, the military recognized a need for a more protected HMMWV and AM General developed the M1114, an armored HMMWV to withstand small arms fire.

The M1114 has been in production since 1996, seeing limited use in the Balkans before deployment to the Middle East.

This design is superior to the M998 with a larger, more powerful turbocharged engine, air conditioning, and a strengthened suspension system.

More importantly, it boasts a fully armored passenger area protected by hardened steel and bullet-resistant glass. With the increase in direct attacks and guerrilla warfare in Iraq,

AM General diverted the majority of its manufacturing power to producing these vehicles.

Humvees were sent into Afghanistan following the 9/11 terrorist attacks, where they proved invaluable during initial operations.

In the early years before IEDs became prevalent, the vehicle was liked by troops for its ability to access rough, mountainous terrain.

The HMMWV has become the vehicular backbone of U.S. forces around the world.

Over 10,000 HMMWVs were employed by coalition forces during the Iraq War.

The Humvee has been described as “the right capability for its era” to provide payload mobility in protected areas, but that conflicts exposing it to full-spectrum threat environments that it was never designed to operate or be survivable in led to adding protection at the cost of mobility and payload.
