In time, this vehicle may inspire its own thread, but as it's billed as the Humvee replacement, I'll put this here.

Wish there was a conversion for this variant in 1/35th scale (click to view larger image)

I wonder if that set up would fit on a Suburban -------  ;)

Wow. My HMMWV with Quad .50 build looks perfectly reasonable and believable compared to this! Is that a Zu-23-2? I only see one barrel.

Angle of the image obscures the left barrel from view.  Interesting addition to the back of the vehicle to accommodate the gun mount.

That's at least a metric ton centered over the end of the vehicle. Must be fun doing wheelies in that.

Pimp my HMMWV

Rear wheels appear to be rubbing against the top of the fender, going anywhere fast or over rough terrain will result in a lot of ruined tyres. :)

Is there one of those silly "Owner's Manual" books for the HMMWV?  Maybe get Google to translate the applicable Technical Manuals to a language that can be understood by the current owner/operators?    :)

If they had done the proper research it might have resulted in the removal of the hard top from the rear half of the vehicle with the additional benefit of placing the weight over the rear axle instead of hanging it out over the back end.

What has always struck me about the HMMWV is how little room there is, inside, despite the external size of the vehicle.   The one I've examined was a hard top it had only seats for four soldiers.   A long-wheelbase Landrover which is narrower and about the same length has room for ten (I have seen nineteen in one though).

There is the troop carrier version with bench seats under a canvas top. Two in front and 8 in the back.

The original post that started this topic has several links to "all things HMMWV" and the majority of the variations on the HMMWV theme are covered with descriptions and peeeeectures...

In my experience, the number of seats in a US Army vehicle is no indication of how many people it can carry. There are even some long standing jokes about it.
Q: How many troops can you fit in the back of a humvee/deuce/5 ton/ cattle car/ etc?
A: Two more!
