Italeri - 1/35 Hmmwv M966 Tow Carrier
New Rubber Tyres, Color Instruction SHEET
The military vehicle developed for the US Army with the acronym Hmmwv ( High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle ), universally known as the 'Humvee', is representative of the technological evolution of US 'know-how' applied to the creation of extremely flexible, 'all-condition' vehicles of which even the 'Willys', is still an icon today. The 'Humvee' went into production during the 1980s and is characterized by its large dimensions and operational flexibility, due in part to the four-wheel drive and the robust structure, which can withstand the most challenging operational and environmental conditions. Different versions were made for roles such as troop transport, logistics, advanced reconnaissance and target acquisition. The M966 Tow Carrier version was equipped with a Tow missile system mounted on the roof of the vehicle in order to increase the Humvee's offensive potential against tanks and other armored vehicles.
