In both production and service with the U.S. military since the early 1980s, the Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Truck (HEMTT) was designed as a replacement for the M520 Goer. It features numerous variants — including the M985 — used in a diverse selection of roles including as a cargo truck, tanker, weapons system, and missile launcher. More than 27,000 have been manufactured and, in addition to service in America, many Middle Eastern militaries use the HEMTT including Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and more.
