The M1151 is an improved version of the standard High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV). It has a heavier chassis and improved engine over the M1025A2, as well as allowing for the addition and removal of Frag armor protection specifically designed to protect the crew from the IED threats regularly faced in operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. The M1151 is built on an Expanded Capacity Vehicle (ECP) chassis that allows for more passengers or for carrying additional supplies. Armament can include mounting and firing of the Mk 19 Mod 3 automatic grenade launcher, M2, caliber, .50 machine gun, M60 and M240 7.62mm machine guns, and M249 5.56mm Squad Assault Weapon (SAW).
