Replica built by shadowquest

On March 22, 1983, the U.S. Army signed a $1.2 billion contract with AM General for the delivery of 55,000 units of the HMMWV in 15 different versions, after this vehicle had already prevailed over the Lamborghini LM002 in a tender in the 1970s. The U.S. Army eventually ordered 70,000 units, raising the order volume to $1.6 billion. This was the largest contract ever signed by the U.S. Army for the supply of wheeled military vehicles. As of 2007, the U.S. Marine Corps owned about 20,000 Humvees, and the U.S. Army owned more than 120,000.

The U.S. Army designation is M998 Series. It is an all-wheel-drive, multipurpose vehicle with a payload of 1.25 tons. The Humvee is versatile and has high mobility and speed. It replaced a host of obsolete light transport vehicles, including the M151 MUTT, Dodge M880 pick-ups, and the M561 Gama Goat and M274 Mule.

AM General builds the vehicle in Mishawaka, Indiana. O'Gara Hess & Eisenhardt builds the armor for the M1113 and M1114 models.

In 2010, AM General delivered the last 2600 Humvees to the U.S. Army to meet its total requirement of 150,000 vehicles. The Humvee's vulnerability to booby-trapped attacks in Afghanistan and Iraq accelerated the development and procurement of the MRAP, increasingly limiting the Humvee's mission spectrum to logistical operations.The Humvee's mission spectrum is increasingly limited to logistical operations.

The U.S. Army transfers retired vehicles to various U.S. law enforcement agencies in the context of the 1033 program. These then use the vehicles for special tasks
