M1037 HMMWV Shelter Carrier
The M1037 and M1042 HMMWVs were Shelter Carrier configurations of the HMMWV family. The only difference between the M1037 and M1042 is that the M1037 did not have a self-recovery winch and the M1042 did. The M1037 shelter carriers were equipped with basic armor and provided the capability to secure and transport the S-250 electrical equipment shelter with a total payload (including crew) of 3,600 pounds (1,634 kilograms).
Fully-loaded M1037 shelter 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 deepwater fording kit and 60 inches (152 centimeters) with the kit.
An improved variant with the A1 series modifications was also produced. The M1097A2 Heavy HMMWV was intended to replace M1037 and M1042 shelter carriers.
When fitted with any of a variety of add-on armor packages as part of near term armor programs, beginning in 2003, M1037s were designated with as M1037P1s.
