Description: The Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) is a US Department of Defense (DoD) program aimed at delivering 2.5 ton (LMTV) and 5 ton (MTV) payload classes diesel powered trucks to the US Armed Forces. These highly reliable trucks support combat operations and civil disaster relief. The FMTV program started in 1988 and approximately 34,000 vehicles have been handed over to military and government customers. Originally, the program's prime contractor was Stewart & Stevenson which was acquired by Armor Holdings Inc and now is a part of Tactical Vehicle Systems Division (TVSD).

The FMTV vehicle models include troop carriers, cargo carriers, vans, dump trucks, recovery vehicles, tractors, specialty vehicles and more. Moreover, the FMTV includes three trailer models, making it a highly versatile tactical vehicle family. Costs have been deceased thanks to 85% parts commonality across the FMTV family. Armor Holdings TVSD has developed advanced versions such as Hybrid Electric Drives, 9-ton Load Handling Systems, HIMARS, 10-ton dump, the FMTV 8 x 8 Flex-Frame and the Height Reducible Electronic Enclosure (HREE).

The Low Signature Armored Cab (LSAC) is a further version which offers crew protection from assault rifle rounds, land mines and artillery fragments. LSAC development started in 2003 and over 2,000 cabs are in service with the US Army as of early 2007. The LSAC has been designed to replace the standard FMTV cab which lacks of armor protection. A two-man team can remove and replace the standard cab with LSAC in just four hours.

The Light Medium Tactical Vehicle (LMTV) is a high mobility 2.5 ton class payload 4x4 diesel powered truck. The LMTV vehicles also feature automatic transmission, and central tire inflation system (CTIS). Basically, the LMTVs perform unit mobility and unit re-supply missions including the transport of equipment and personnel. Moreover, additional versions perform a wide variety of missions including cargo transport, vehicle recovery operations (wrecker), construction (dump), line haul (tractor), and airdrop missions using the Low Velocity AirDrop (LVAD) model.

The LMTV series includes the M1078A1 standard cargo vehicle, M1079A1 van, M1080A1 2.5 ton chassis, and M1082 2.5 ton trailer.
