M1025 HMMWV Armament Carrier w/ Basic Armor
The M1025, M1025A1, and M1025A2 HMMWVs were Armament Carrier configurations of the HMMWV family. The M1025, M1025A1, and M1025A2 armament carriers provided for mounting and firing of the Mk 19 Mod 3 automatic grenade launcher, M2 .50 caliber machine gun, and M60 and M240 7.62mm machine guns. The weapons were ring-mounted with a 360 degree arc of fire. The vehicles were equipped with basic armor protection for crew, weapon components, and ammunition.
Fully-loaded M1025, M1025A1, and M1025A2 armament carriers could climb road grades as steep as 60 percent (31 degrees) and traverse a side slope of up to 40 percent (22 degrees). The vehicles ford hard bottom water crossings up to 30 inches (76 centimeters) without a deep water fording kit and 60 inches (152 centimeters) with the kit.
An improved variant with the A1 series modifications was also produced. The M1025A2 models have, along with all the other A2 series improvements new bumpers, which made the vehicles slightly longer. A 9,000 pound winch was also available for the M1025A2 models as an option. The inclusion of this as an option on the M1025A2 negated the need for a separate M1026A2 variant. The difference between M1025/A1 and M1026/A1 vehicles was that the M1025 types did not have self-recovery winches, while the M1026 types did.
M1025 variants fitted with any of a variety of add-on armor packages as part of near term armor programs, beginning in 2003 were designated with a "P1" after their respective model number.
