LMTV Light Medium Tactical Vehicles 4x4 Trucks.

LMTV 4x4 pictures FMTV army trucks The LMTV is the light-medium 2.5-ton capacity four wheel drive truck of the US Army's FMTV family. It shares many components with its 6x6 5 ton sibling, including the engine (lower turbo boost) and transmission.

The 4x4 LMTV is supplied as either a bare chassis (M1080), standard cargo (M1078, drop-side tray) or a van (M1079). The van body adds 635mm to the vehicle's height but can be removed for air-transport.

There is a special version (LVAD, M1081) of the standard cargo model with a cab folding at the window-line for airborne transport and parachute drops.
