What will the next generation Humvee army car look like? (reflections in 16 photos)

"A Humvee military vehicle in green or yellow coloring is on sale. Great for towing cargo, artillery and soldiers. It can wade across rivers, cross sand dunes and jump over stones. Not recommended for city fights or mined roads. Starting price 7500 dollars."



After a legendary career that began with the invasion of Panama in 1989, continued in the Persian Gulf in 1991, then in Bosnia and ended in the wars of Iraq and Afghanistan, the American multipurpose fleet of Humvee vehicles enters into dozens of auctions. This car is an icon of the American military, it replaced the Jeep jeep and spawned a civic fellow with exorbitant appetites, which became a symbol of American ego and extravagance.

But now the army wants a steeper, more maneuverable vehicle, light enough for helicopter transportation and strong enough to withstand powerful explosions.


For one very important, big and bold contract, which the army planned to issue a few years ago, three major defense companies are competing. Under the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle program worth 30 billions of dollars, it is planned to manufacture 55000 machines, which should debut and ultimately become one of the most outstanding machines of our time.


Wars are often measured by statistics: won and lost battles, losses from us and from them, looted cities, captured and lost territories, etc. But they are also determined by their weapons - like a roar tank Sherman was the soundtrack of World War II, and the noise of the blades of the American multi-purpose helicopter Iroquois was the characteristic sound of Vietnam.

And now comes the new candidate for the symphonic confusion of the Next War - a mad scientist mating a jeep with a tank. After ten years of development, the Pentagon is ready to show the JLTV car, created for the battle on the front line and transportation of supplies in the rear.


JLTV will be another branch of the family tree, from which Jeep and Humvee have already grown, serving with distinction in many parts of the world, from the Ardennes forests in France to the sands of Iraq. From both cars commercial shoots that quickly integrated into the cultural consciousness of Americans sprang.


Humvee came to the commercial market mostly due to the Terminator himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger, who wanted a powerful commandos car for personal use and convinced the manufacturer, AM General, to make a civilian version.

“Take a look at these deltoid muscles, take a look at these calves,” he repeated more than once, looking in love with Humvee’s eyes.


Over time, the American public also fell in love with its muscular form. Stars of the stage and sports, celebrities snapped up these cars like hot cakes.

But while Jeep is considered a symbol of daring, but reliable endurance, the Hummer, on the contrary, since its appearance on the commercial horizon, mocked for its size and exorbitant appetite. Environmentalists strongly resented about this and even burned a dealership in California.


Production was curtailed and the latest Hummer was sold in the 2010 year, ten years after General Motors bought the brand.

Automotive industry experts noted that “it all looked superficial and frivolous and ultimately led to his demise. It's not cool to have a car that eats a gallon on 10 miles (liter per 4 km). ”


The car Humvee debuted in military operations in the 80-ies of the last century, served in the Gulf War and, according to one military analyst, "soon became the ubiquitous symbol of the US military."

For more than 30 years, AM General has manufactured over 300000 Humvee cars for 60 countries. Recently, contracts have been concluded for hundreds of millions of dollars with foreign countries, including Afghanistan, Kenya and Mexico.


The United States has more than 160000 of these machines on its balance sheet. In addition to Humvee, serving abroad, these machines are also in service with the National Guard and take part in disaster management tasks.

“He sends a very strong signal to the citizens when they see the arrival of soldiers on Humvee cars ... that means help has come,” says one of the senior officers of the National Guard.


In Iraq, the vulnerability of the Humvee car also became a symbol of a carelessly conducted operation, when the military and the command were not ready for long-term hard work, and the rebels completely blurred the traditional front lines.

As the conflict continued, the military simply brought tanks and other armored vehicles to full wear, after which they had to rely on the Humvee for combat patrols, and these vehicles were not designed for this.


The enemy increasingly began to use hidden directional land mines, as a result, the loss of the American contingent increased, especially in those units that moved on unprotected Humvee. The soldiers used what they called “village defenses” to reinforce their cars, finding suitable pieces of metal at landfills and screwing them to their Humvee.

In one of the divisions, the Humvee was called "Rosinantami", as Don Quixote's horse - a symbol of pre-Flood.

In 2004, the soldier of the National Guard of Tennessee asked the Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfield about this, telling him directly that "our vehicles are not protected."


“We are digging up trash heaps of rusted pieces of iron and sorting through discarded broken bulletproof glass with traces of bullets and shards. We pick it all up, he said, we choose what's better, put it on our cars and go to fight them. ”

Rumsfield now replied with the famous phrase: "You go to war with the army that you have."

The Pentagon then quickly began to book a Humvee and buy thousands of heavily armored MRAP vehicles (Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected - with increased protection against mines and improvised explosive devices). But even engaging in these tasks, the next generation car, already known under the designation JLTV, was already planned there.


It was assumed that it will also be mobile as an unarmored Humvee - a powerful SUV that can withstand the same explosion as the MRAP, while towing a heavy load.

This project attracted the attention of three defense giants, one of whom was supposed to issue a contract this summer. AM General manufactured Humvee, Oshkosh manufactured MRAP and Lockheed Martin, the largest defense contractor in the world.


Lockheed is mainly known for its aerospace business; it produces the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. However, a company based in the state of Maryland was invited to the program because “it was considered a particularly interesting engineering proposal,” said the vice president of the ground-based machinery division. “The goal here is to take the capabilities of different machines and combine them into a significantly smaller system.”

New vehicles that the Marine Corps will purchase in much smaller quantities will not completely replace the Humvee, which will remain in operation for several years. But many cars after several years of hard work need to be repaired. Under contracts with the Pentagon, about 50 Humvee machines are sold at auctions every week. And 75 percent of revenue goes to the ministry of defense.



Buyers are mainly ranchers and farms, collectors and enthusiasts who want to have their piece stories.

“The demand is very high. At some auctions, applicants are fighting for 10-12, of course the price of the car increases significantly, ”said one of the leaders of the auction site.

One college student in Maryland recently bought a car for 10000 dollars. He fiddles with him in his father’s garage and sometimes rolls around the surrounding hills around the farm.

“It is perfect for forest trails,” says the student, and at the same time he sighs heavily. “It’s a pity that everything will be limited to them, because it is illegal on the roads.”

      Earlier, when this machine appeared, it was a hamer, then they began to assure us that she was a humvee and that it was a humvee from the very beginning, now it’s the humveys who are pestering, and what are they juggling with words?

        What will the next generation Humvee army car look like? (reflections in 16 photos)


        of course .... ON Oshcosh A-TV which beat August 25 2015 of the year in the JLTV contest ...
        it is designed to replace most of the HMMWV fleet with a light tactical vehicle ...
        but with much better protection and off-road mobility ...

        under the agreement, which includes both small-scale initial production (LRIP) and mass production (FRP), Oshkosh plans to produce about 17 000 cars worth 6,7 billion green candy wrappers ..... in total it is planned to purchase 55000 JLTV cars .. ...

        the JLTV family of cars consists of two options, a two- and four-seater BBM, as well as a special trailer (JLTV-T)
        the double version has one basic platform, universal Utility (JLTV-Utl)
        The four-seater version has two base platforms - General Purpose (JLTV-GP) and General Purpose Weapons Carrier (JLTV-CCWC) weapon transporter
        Oshkosh JLTV applies the latest crew protection technology Oshkosh CORE1080 and independent suspension system Tak-xnumxiproviding high mobility ....

        In addition to excellent protection, mobility and ergonomics, the Oshcosh JLTV provides network capabilities for troops, the entire spectrum of military operations and missions anywhere in the world ....

          BUT,aerospace giant Lockheed Martin ((with an annual 2014 turnover of $ 45 billion and is the largest defense contractor in the world))) filed a protest against the results of the JLTV tender to the Accounts Chamber of the GAO (Government Accountability Office) SySyA ...

          “After evaluating the data provided on our request, Lockheed Martin filed a protest against the decision on the winner in the JLTV program. We strongly believe that we offered the best quality and affordable solution for the program. Lockheed Martin does not start to protest easily, but we protest to express our concern over the evaluation of Lockheed Martin's offer. "


          в AM Generalstated:
          We believe that protests will ultimately lead to a diversion from our ongoing projects, which could lead to growth, "AM General said in a statement yesterday afternoon."
          JLTV cannot and cannot replace HMMWV, "continues AM General in a statement.
          The Army and Marine Corps repeatedly emphasized the need to modernize and support more than 160 000 HMMWV in their operation. "(Compare this with the planned production order of just the 55 000 JLTV, and you will get 105 000 Hammers that will not be replaced).
          AM General intends to actively develop and produce, in partnership with the Army and Marine Corps, the deeply modernized HMMWV and continue its maintenance program.


          in 2015, AM GENERAL signed an 6-child contract with the MO SySyA, in the amount of 428,3 million, for the purchase of a medical machine M997A3 HMMWV for the national guard .
          under the original contract for 89,5 million $ AM General will supply the national guard 654 medical machines M997A3 HMMWV ...

          all the more so as the so-called "assortment" is expanding
          Oshkosh introduced a new version of its well-known M-ATV MRAP armored vehicle, made in the 6X6 wheel formula. The M-ATV machine in the 6x6 variant is made on an elongated chassis, all wheels have independent TAK-4 suspension, as on the base 4x4 car. The total combat weight of the M-ATV in the 6x6 variant is 42000 pounds (about 19,07 tons - compared to the maximum 14,7 tons of the base machine) with a payload weight of 12000 pounds (5448 kg)

            Meanwhile, Textron Systems Corporation has shown the option of upgrading HMMWV vehicles under the Survivable Combat Tactical Vehicle (SCTV) project with armored vehicles. The SCTV project was originally developed by Textron together with a small American company Granite within the framework of the US Marine Corps 2009 contract for the creation of an option to modernize the HMMWV fleet with a radical increase in security, but later the ILC lost interest in this topic. The corporation also unsuccessfully offered this project to the US Army.

            The modernization of HMMWV vehicles under the SCTV project consists in installing a new specially designed armored vehicle on the vehicle. The weight of the empty upgraded vehicle is 13000 pounds (5900 kg), and the total combat weight reaches 18500 pounds (8400 kg) (the total combat weight of the most heavily armored standard versions of the HMMWV is not more than 6200 kg). To maintain the level of mobility, the car upgraded by SCTV is equipped with a Cummins 6,7-liter diesel engine, deformed to 275 horsepower, as well as a six-speed Allison 2500SP automatic transmission. Suspension, braking system are also being modernized, and a powerful air conditioner is installed. The level of security of the upgraded SCTV vehicle is supposedly comparable to that of the new armored vehicles developed under the JLTV program ...
            PS According to the magazine "Jane's International Defense Review" in an article by Daniel Wasserbly "AUSA 2015: Colombia, Ukraine considering Textron's SCTV Humvee upgrade", Ukraine and Colombia should become the starting customers of this unit.

    the army wants a steeper, even more maneuverable car

    Legends circulated about its “maneuverability” even in Yugoslavia, our peacekeeping paratroopers neighing that the BTR-80 could turn around on the road, but the much smaller “Hammer” in the same conditions didn’t. Yes, and his cross in the same place was ridiculed. So the "legend" died almost 20 years ago.

    You can ride on a tank, if the means allow, BRDM people buy disarmed, for fishing and hunting. "Tiger" is still doing civilian. But this car is not for the city, but the "Hammers" took for show-offs to ride the monkeys and show their coolness.

    Hamer sagina, not doubtless interesting, but, nevertheless, is an example when the technical development does not meet the application strategy. If we have a hamer with, say, domestic Ural or some other four-wheel drive 4-5 ton truck, we will see parasitic things: for comparable costs of fuel and other consumables, including service time, the truck drags more and is generally more convenient.
    As for the future fate of tactical SUVs, I think that he has a certain future, like a car for reconnaissance and patrolling. However, it seems to me that for these purposes an armored vehicle with a dense cross-country capacity of up to 5 tons (for the Russian army - 4 tons and the ability to transport a Mi-8 helicopter) with a crew (landing party) of 4-6 people and the ability to transport 200 kg of cargo is needed. While the bourgeoisie see the future in a magin weighing 10-15 tons with the same crew and a half-ton load in the back

            All these machines weighing 7 tons are closer to 10 ke and by no means contribute to helicopter transportation.

            What Navistar Defense International MaxxPro tried to replace it with (easy care) so over 10 everything passed in my opinion ...
            Although, maybe it is necessary. And transportation by helicopter is a blessing no one needs?
            In general, it would be interesting to hear opinions on this topic.

    And why is this hammer even without loopholes in the doorway? What, all hope for the tower? And the rest are sitting and smoking nervously thinking: will the shooter beat off or not. We even have collection gazelles with loopholes

    "... the roar of the Sherman tank was the soundtrack of World War II ..."

    But I naively thought that the soundtrack was voiced by T-34, T-34-85, like the best tanks of the 2nd World War. Maybe I'm wrong.

    Curious transformation. Initially, the Hammer was conceived as a light multi-purpose truck. In the end, everything returned to the armored car. Not armored personnel carriers or armored personnel carriers in the modern sense, but to an armored truck. Something like the reincarnation of the M3 "scout"

      NO, not armored, to reduce the weight of the BBM ... only the armored capsule is armored, the trunk / cargo compartment is also not armored ...

      first prototype, Lockheed Martin's JLTV, category B model, built in October 2007

    the roar of the Sherman tank was the soundtrack of the Second World War, and the noise of the blades of the American multi-purpose helicopter Iroquois was the characteristic sound of Vietnam.

    Sherman - 50 000 pieces released.
    T-34 - 84 000 pieces released.
    I understand that this is a translation. But somehow enrages.

    Delivered- "Sherman's roar, world sound 2)))) Rather, it’s already t-34 or" tiger ")) Monstrous fuel consumption, like a tank; And if there are several thousand of them, and the roads are shot through ???)))) Once again proves that the Americans never fought for extermination in their territory))
