Good news from  Italeri!

Italeri is launching  the M1120 HEMTT Load Handling System. The kit is a rebox of the M977 (1996) with new sprue parts, wheels and decals. This was a most expected kit, since they already have the Tanker (M978), and the gun truck.

 

The acronym HEMTT (Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Truck) is for a eight-wheel drive off-road capable heavy truck, produced from the mid-80s for the United States Army. Thanks to its features, the HEMTT is able to guarantee a great off-road mobility and significant transportation performance. It has become the real “workhorse” of the Army capable of carrying ammunition and equipment in a very effective way. In details the M1120 HEMTT LHS (Load Handling System) is equipped with a loading system, that can be used direct from the cabin, able to transport a lot of different types of cargo and containers. The M1120 is capable of carrying a payload of 11 tons. That’s make it ideal to perform military logistic duties. It has been recently used in operative area as Iraq and Afghanistan.
