AM General representatives will be on hand at the Association of the U.S. Army (AUSA) Global Force Symposium & Exposition, Mar. 13 – 15, Booth 707, at the Von Braun Convention Center, Huntsville, Ala., to showcase their latest initiative in Light Tactical Vehicle innovation: “The HMMWV Enhanced Appliqué Program (EAP).”
Building on the mantra “The best vehicle for the mission is the one you already have in your formation”, AM General’s EAP initiative provides early entry formations with mobility, lethality, and power solutions on a proven, versatile and globally transportable platform……the renowned HMMWV.
“Showcasing our innovative HMMWV solutions at the AUSA Global Force Symposium & Expo allows us to demonstrate to our customers that we listen to their most pressing needs and deliver,” said AM General Vice President Chris Vanslager. “As the premiere global vehicle solution provider, AM General continues to evolve by offering a diverse range of affordable, innovative products and services. Our new EAP initiative on display in our AUSA booth does just that — from roll-on and roll-off capability for easier transportability on a CH-47 helicopter to safe 9-man squad mobility to exportable power.”
The EAP initiative focuses on HMMWV technology insertion kits that significantly transform the vehicle’s capabilities by enhancing its mobility, transportability, lethality, power and autonomous capabilities.

Enhanced Tactical Transportability (ETT) / Enhanced Tactical Mobility (ETM) HMMWV Kits: As envisioned, the ETT and ETM Kits can be applied to existing HMMWVs in the military fleet and provide an immediate and affordable solution for customers who need to rapidly deploy, employ, and re-deploy in support of strategic, operational and tactical power projection operations with minimal preparation. The ETM kit can be quickly and easily installed on a HMMWV by a unit maintenance team, and the ETT kit can be installed at the installation level. Once the kits are installed, the vehicles transport up to 9 soldiers, offer stable firing platforms for squad weapons and fit inside a CH-47 helicopter without major and costly logistical changes to training, maintenance procedures and supply support.
