The Humvee first saw the light on March 1983, when the Pentagon awarded one billion dollars to AM General to develop 55,000 Humvees for Military purposes.
The “High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV)”, better known by the nickname “Humvee,” it’s primarily used to carry troops and cargo, evacuate the wounded from the warzone, and launch surface-to-air missiles.
Its first appearance was during “Operation Just Cause” in 1989, when the U.S. invaded Panama, and throughout the Gulf War.
However, the popularity of the Humvee increased after they proved their off-road capabilities during “Operation Desert Storm,” to the point that, due to high demand, in 1992, it was released on the market in a civilian version known as “Hummer.”
The Hummer, produced in the very same factory as the Humvee and of which it shares several components, rapidly became a symbol of recent American history and the most used truck in action and military movies.
