7 Steps to Enhance the US Military’s Humvee

The most common vehicle operated by the U.S. military is the High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle or Humvee. Not surprisingly, the U.S. Army owns the majority of the Humvees ― more than 100,000. The Marine Corps is next, with 24,000. The other services together operate fewer than 10,000.

The Humvee also is extremely popular overseas. More than 60 foreign militaries operate some 250,000 Humvees. The company that builds the HMMWV, AM General, recently received a contract to produce up to 11,500 vehicles in a variety of configurations for nine different U.S. allies and partners.

There is a plan to replace a portion of the Humvee fleet with the new Joint Light Tactical Vehicle. The U.S. Army wants to buy some 49,000 JLTVs over the next 25 years. The Marine Corps hopes to acquire 5,500 JLTVs and shrink its Humvee fleet to about 13,000 vehicles.
