The M1097 series HMMWVs were higher payload capacity cargo/troop carrier configurations of the HMMWV family. The vehicles were equipped with basic armor and used to transport equipment, materials, and/or personnel, like the M998/M1038 series, except with a higher payload capacity. The heavy variant troop carrier was capable of transporting a 2-man crew and 8 passengers. The heavy variant cargo carrier was capable of transporting a payload (including crew) of 4,400 pounds (1,998 kilograms).
The introduction of the M1097 rendered the M1069, based on the standard 1 1/4-ton vehicles, obsolete in the role of prime mover for the M167 Towed VADS and M119 105mm howitzer. The M1097 with the artillery bustle kit replaced the M1069 in these roles. The vehicle could also act as a shelter carrying designed to carry heavy electronic systems or as a weapons platforms. The M1097 series could be configured to act as a command post shelter from which battlefield traffic could be monitored and a communication center from which personnel might monitor incoming and outgoing radio and telecommunication traffic during operations.Made with Real LEGO parts and Includes instructions.
