The HEMTT or Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Truck (A.K.A Ghost Truck) is a family of 8x8 heavy high-mobility trucks produced by Oshkosh and used by the US military. The HEMTT entered service with the US Army in 1982 and replaced the ageing M520 Goer. Over 15,000 of these high mobility trucks were built. These are also referred as Family of Heavy Tactical Vehicles or FHTV. These vehicles are rapidly deployable and are designed to operate in any climatic conditions.
There are a number of variants of the HEMTT trucks, built on a similar chassis and equipped to perform different missions. These high mobility trucks are used by the US military to perform local and line haul, unit ressuply and related tactical missions.
Cab of the HEMTT accommodates driver and one passenger. It may be fitted with add-on armored kit. It protects the crew from 7.62-mm rounds and artillery shell fragments. Vehicle has a machine gun mount on top of the roof.
Vehicle is powered by the Detroit Diesel 8V92TA turbocharged diesel engine, developing 450 hp. Engine is located behind the cab. Such layout allowed to reduce overall height of the vehicle. Engine is coupled to an automatic transmission. First two axles are steered. This military truck has 8x8 configuration, however it can be switched to 8x4 on hard surface roads for maximum speed and range. Vehicle has great cross-country mobility. A self-recovery winch is available on certain models.
