Hi Gang,
I came across this pic:

https://www.dvidshub.net/image/5558700/operation-hickory-sting-nc-guard-soldiers-load-up-and-move-out-ntc-exercise

Do anyone know how much of these were converted? Are there more pics to find? I guess the proposed M1091 FMTV fuel tanker with HEMTT tank and pump is cancelled?

I was refering to the HEMTT, not the FMTV.

What is this True Models he used?
BTW Whats the designation of the fuel tank on the M1076 trailer?

So why did you mention the M1083 in the post title ?

I guess this trailer is part of the Modular Fuel System (MFS) :

Here's a similar one :

BTW The fuel tank/pump unit from PSM could only be used with mods. the filler cap of the tank is different.

I guess the PSM (or the MMK) tanks are 600 gallon models :



whereas those with recessed fillers are 500 gallon ones :

(This is probably obvious to all but here goes . . . . )

The trailer mounted modular fuel tank (a tank rack) is a containerized fuel storage/dispensing unit and can be loaded/unloaded off the M1076 trailer by a HEMTT with LHS (Load Handling Equipment),

There is also a containerized water tank version (also referred to as a tank rack) with pump and purification equipment called a Hippo.

Damn, Frenchy, now I have to go back to the drawing board..

Hmmm... the best way (not the cheapest) is to get 4 tanks, cut them horizontal and glue the two upper halves together.
40 Euros for Trumpeter M1083
plus
76 Euros for two PSM tank sets
plus
40 Euros for Legend FMTV update
