Concord Mini Color Series 7513 - US Army HMMWV's in Iraq


After its introduction into U.S. Army service in 1985, the High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV for short) became the prime utility vehicle of U.S. ground forces. The HMMWV replaced the M151 Ford MUTT, the M274 Mule, the M561 Gama Goat, and to some extent the M880 pickup trucks. Since series production of the HMMWV started in 1985, the vehicle has been produced in a basic M998 model along with various other variants, as well as in the upgraded M998A1 and M998A2 models and their associated variants. Also manufactured by AM General were Expanded Capacity Vehicles and Up-armored models. By June 2004, more than 175,000 HMMWVs had been produced by AM General Corporation in Mishawaka, Indiana, USA. (This total includes HMMWVs of the basic series as well as of the newer A1 and A2 series). While the bulk of these fore mentioned HMMWVs are in service with the U.S. Armed Forces, some 30,000 are also used by more than 40 different nations worldwide. In November 2000, the U.S. Army signed a contract for the production of 31,474 additional HMMWVs, of which 18,000 had been delivered by June 2004. The last of the vehicles covered by this contract will be delivered by 2007.
This book should be seen as a sequel to the Concord Mini Color Series title 7510, "HMMWV - Workhorse of the U.S. Army". It is aimed at giving the HMMWV enthusiast an overview of the HMMWVs used by the U.S. Army in Iraq during Operation "Iraqi Freedom".

Since the first units gathered in the Gulf region in late 2002, right through until the fighting in Najaf in August 2004, there was virtually not a single U.S. Army unit which did not use an HMMWV in some form or other. The units of these foregoing divisions used HMMWVs for troop transport, as weapon carriers, platforms for surveillance and radio equipment, as command and control vehicles, as ambulances, liaison vehicles and as patrol vehicles with armor protection.

Currently it is estimated that the 136,000 U.S. troops in Iraq operate some 12,000 HMMWVs. These 12,000 HMMWVs include vehicles from the basic, A1 and A2 series. Also deployed in Iraq are HMMWV Expanded Capacity Vehicle models and Up-armored models. Many HMMWVs are field modified with Armor Survivability Kits and improvised armor protection.

Carl Schulze and Ralph Zwilling traveled to Iraq to bring us this photo report of the many different variants of HMMWVs currently operating in Iraq. There are many unique versions featured - ASK, Gun Truck, HHV, Special Forces GMV, LRASЎKЎK.. indeed an encyclopedia of HMMWVs in Iraq.
