Major CSS equipment includes the family of medium tactical vehicles (FMTV) trucks; M977 heavy, expanded-mobility tactical truck (HEMTT); PLS trucks; and heavy equipment transporter (HET).
Quite apart from their high mobility and long haul attributes, the base M977 Hemtt carries a self-loading/unloading crane at the rear, always a great advantage when heavy loads have to be handled rapidly.
Whenever your M977, M984A1, and M985 HEMMTs are refurbished, the safety clamp on the cable is removed.
The outrigger arms on your M977 and M985 HEMTT are there to steady the truck when using the crane to lift a heavy load.
