Humvee M1167 HMMWV For The U.S Army

Humvee M1167


The M1167 is an Expanded Capacity Vehicle TOW/Armament Carrier HMMWV. Along with the TOW missile launcher, the M1167 provides for the ring-mounting and firing of various weapons systems with a 360 degree arc of fire. The M1167 is able to stow a minimum of six missiles mounted in the cargo area and is available with a Manual Traversing Unit and a TOW Gunners Protection Kit. HMMWV is the world-standard family of light,
tactical vehicles. It is a lightweight, high performance, independent four-wheel drive, versatile and adaptable platform that currently supports more than 100 different systems.


As an Expanded Capacity Vehicle, the M1167 is specifically designed for use over all types of roads, as well as cross-country terrain, and in all weather conditions without sacrificing mobility, dependability or performance. The M1167 is air transportable and droppable, and can be slingloaded by helicopter.


The M1167 provides superior armor ballistic protection for crew, missile stowage, secondary weapons mount for close range, and ammunition. The armor comes installed in two kits, “A” and “B”, which when combined, provide gapless mine and ballistic protection. Additional fragmentation kits are all field installable and removable to provide flexibility for missions that do not require heavy protection. The vehicles are equipped with an A/C system to provide greater crew comfort.
