Lego Oshkosh HEMTT M978A4

The Oshkosh Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Truck (HEMTT) is one of the world’s most versatile vehicles. In use by around sixteen militaries worldwide over 27,000 have been produced since the early 1980s, performing roles as diverse missile launching, fire fighting, towing, and simply carrying cargo. Powered by a variety of engines whatever its purpose the HEMTT can climb slopes of over 60% and ford water up to 1.2m deep.

This particular HEMTT is an M978A4 Fuel Servicing Truck, or ‘tanker’ to the rest of us. and it comes from Evan M of Flickr who has recreated the huge 8×8 truck brilliantly in mini-figure scale. Evan’s model features a whole host of neat playable features and there’s more to see of his Oshkosh HEMTT via the link above.
