During the late 1970's, the US Military worked at incorporating the functions of
numerous military vehicles such as the M151 MUTT and M561 "Gamma Goat" into one
unified design. Adequately named (HMMW) High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled
Vehicle, this vehicle would be designed for durability, superior off-road
handling, and versatility. The M1025 could be equipped with M2 or M60 machine
guns, as well as MK.19 grenade launchers. This famous vehicle is now part of the
Tamiya's Military Miniature Series.

1985, can serve as a cargo or troop transport vehicle, armament carrier, TOW
anti-tank missile or ground-to-air missile employing vehicle, rescue vehicle,

predecessors, the M1025 featured a metal roof in place of a canvas roof and
door. The M1025 could be equipped with M2 or M60 machine guns, as well as MK.19
grenade launchers. The Humvee first was deployed to the Panama conflict and
