The Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) is a series of vehicles, based on a common chassis, that vary by payload and mission requirements.
     

The FMTV is a series of vehicles with integrated vetronics that are based on a common chassis that range in payload from 2.5 to 5 tons, and vary by intended use. These vehicles are equipped with the SAE J1708 and J1939 electronic databuses for Class V intrusive diagnostics of four unique electronic control modules (ECM).

The FMTV includes cargo trucks and vans, as well as long-wheelbase cargo trucks, tractor trucks, wreckers, and dump trucks for local and line haul, unit mobility, resupply, and similar missions in combat, combat support, and combat service support units. The trucks are rapidly deployable worldwide and operates on primary and secondary roads, trails, and cross-country terrain, in all climatic conditions.

These vehicles, which include two companion trailers, offer air-drop capability, armored cabs, and roof gun mounts with shields. The FMTV A1 series has upgraded transmission, electronic databus, an anti-lock brake system, interactive electronic technical manuals, and a tire-pressure system that can be controlled from the cab.
