Humvee's new life: American SUV modernized

Externally, the new SUV NXT 360 is not very different from the HMMWV, but inside, according to the developers, this is "a completely different car." In the new version, all major components and components have been upgraded - engine, chassis, transmission, etc. According to the classification adopted in the West, the NXT 360 is presented in the light-wheeled vehicle class, however, even in the basic version, the SUV comes with an armored body, the ballistic class protection - B7. Anti-mine protection corresponds to the level of 2a according to the STANAG standard (the machine will withstand the blasting of 6 kg of TNT). In the cabin on the floor are special anti-splinter mats, seats - without a rigid attachment to the floor. Reinforced suspension allows you to withstand 7100 kg full weight SUV. The car has a multi-fuel 6,5-liter turbocharged V8 250 horsepower. (624 Nm) with 6-speed automatic transmission 6L85e.

The new armored car is supposed to be exported to countries that have the old version of the Humvee in service and in which it is in demand. In the American Army itself, the HMMWV is completely removed from service and replaced with an Oshkosh L-ATV (Light Combat Tactical All-Terrain Vehicle, "light combat tactical all-terrain vehicle")

    TIGER is better. And there is an order of magnitude more space in it. The engine was changed because it was originally designed for light weight without armor. Hence the layout and design of all other nodes and assemblies. If you bring it to mind, you need to redo EVERYTHING !!! Tigrische was originally born reservation and with a great reserve for modernization. There would have been a larger Tigrino tribe in the army ..

    You must either reduce the base of the car, or completely redo the Humvee. They already hung loads on him like a donkey

    I drove a little on Humvee (not at the wheel) at the end of the reservist service.
    Very nice car. Low, steady, powerful.
    And it broke a little, unlike the Israeli assembly jeeps on the Ford chassis (Sufa and all sorts of “Batashites”) or Land Rovers from England.
    There was only one complaint to her: I ran into a mine - all the corpses. However, others
    jeeps were no better in this regard. If the Americans managed to improve the mine action
    protection is excellent.

      And how on soft soils? Given how many extra pounds were hung on him, he needs to double all 4 wheels)) And a jeep that will drive on roads generally does not need one. Partisans and saboteurs somehow do not really like to walk on roads in formation and with a song

        A lightly armored version rode arable land.
        The problem is that there is not enough space in them, 4 people are placed if not tamped wassat. In full calculation of course.

          We and MTZ go about arable land with 2PTS4 with a capacity of up to a company of soldiers in full armament. I'm talking about salt marshes and in the conditions of spring and autumn impassability.

              And I'm talking about the same thing. It is necessary that such a vehicle had good armor, small arms, maneuverability at the tractor level, high speed, and capacity. If any of this is missing, then this is either a tractor or a regular pickup truck. There is no middle ground.

        Those first Humvees weren't armored at all. They had only a frame of pipes in case of capsizing and tarpaulin from the sun. He climbed the rocky slopes well. But we didn’t get into the mud.
        Like this. Only the circle for the turret above I do not remember. The turret for the MAG was with the jeep commander next to the carrier.

          I just have a passion for homemade all-terrain vehicles. It would be interesting to compare the Humvee and Tiger pendants in terms of strength, axle weight distribution, overcoming obstacles, tipping resistance, etc. In general, not advertising opportunities, but real and not on a solid road

    HMMWV was a great machine, but unfortunately its time has passed. L-ATV is better here, and the modularity in comparison with the HMMWV was notably improved.
    But for many countries, HMMWV will still be an excellent option. For example, Iraq! But as I was told here on the site, that Iraq presented all its HMMWV to bad terrorists.
