    Go truck gmv hmmwv

    The GMV is a modified HMMWV that has been adapted for special operations use, mostly based on lessons learnt during Operation Desert Storm in 1991.
    Several variants, tailored to different special operations units, exist:


    • GMV-S (Special Forces)GMV-R (75th Ranger Regiment)
    • GMV-N (Navy SEALs)
    • GMV-T / GMV-SD / GMV-ST (AFSOC)
    • GMV-M (MARSOC)


    The GMV has the following features:


    • heavier suspension
    • more rugged tires
    • improved ground clearance
    • more powerful engine
    • open bed for improved storage/access
    • winch for towing other vehicles (up to 4,200 pounds)
    • GPS navigation system


    GMVs feature a set of mounts onto which various weapons can be fitted. These include:


    • M2 .50 machine guns
    • M240 7.62mm belt-fed machine guns
    • MK19/MK47 40mm grenade launchers
    • M249 SAW 5.56mm machine guns


    GMVs can be fitted with smoke grenade launchers, rear and front. These tubes launch smoke canisters which airburst above and around the GMV, creating an instant smoke screen – very useful when breaking contact.
    The GMV has a cruising range of up to 275 miles and ODA GMV teams may well need to operate far behind enemy lines, on their own, with only occasional re-supply from the air. Special Forces ODAs undergo extensive training in driving and maintaining the GMVs, with an emphasis on off-road handling and in-field repairs.

    GMVs feature an open rear, where an enclose cabin would normally be. This flat bed area is used to store all the fuel, ammunition, rations and other supplies that the ODA’s mission requires.
    Early models of the GMV were based around the HMMWV M1025 chasis. Later models of GMVs included versions based on the M1113 HMMWV chasis. Another model, this time based on the M1165 HMMWV, can be fiited with armor kits to create an ‘up-armored’ GMV with additional armor plating and an optional ballistic shield around the top gunner’s turret.

    I wonder what fits in the various mounts they include. I get that they don't include weapons to keep the price down, but it would be nice to know what they were designed for.

    Doing some research, the top mount looks to be a mk93 mount for a M2 or MK19. Swivels still look weird
