Armament
No armament for the basic variant of the vehicle, but some versions can be equipped with a ring mount weapon station armed with a 12.7mm machine gun.
Design and protection
The layout of the M1097A2 is similar to the basic variant of the HMMWV with the engine at the front, crew compartment in the middle and large cargo area at the rear which is used mainly to carry a shelter. The M1097 series were equipped with basic armor and used to transport equipment, materials, and/or personnel, like the M998/M1038 series, except with a higher payload capacity. The heavy variant cargo carrier was able of transporting a payload with crew of around 2,000 kg. The shelter version of M1097 series is designed to carry heavy electronic systems or as a weapons platforms. The M1097 series could be configured to act as a command post shelter from which battlefield traffic could be monitored and a communication center from which personnel might monitor incoming and outgoing radio and telecommunication traffic during operations.
Mobility
The chassis, mechanical components and general performance are the same as other models of the standard Humvee M998 series. The M1097 A2 is motorized with a GEP 6500 V8, naturally aspirated diesel engine coupled to an 4-speed automatic transmission, maximum input torque rating of 451 lb.-ft (612 N•m), electronically controlled. The M1045A2 can climb 40% slopes and traverse a side slope of up to 30% fully loaded. The M1097A2 can ford hard bottom water crossing up to 76 cm without a deep water fording kit and up to 1.52 m with the kit.
Accessories
The M1097 series use a troop seat kit for troop transport operations, a 200 ampere umbilical power cable to power shelter equipment, and stowage racks for ammunition and equipment. To accommodate the higher payload capacity, the vehicles were equipped with a re-inforced frame, cross-members, lifting shackles, heavy duty rear springs, shock absorbers, reinforced control arms, heavy duty tires and rims, and a transfer case and differential with modified gear ratio. M1097A2 models, in addition to having all the other A2 series improvements, had new bumpers, which made the vehicles slightly longer. A 4,085 kg winch was also available for the M1097A2 models as an option.
