The High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV or Humvee) is an armed troop transport vehicle used by the USA. The Humvee's main purpose is to transport and deploy infantry rapidly and safely, as well as engaging potential threats to its passengers.
In-Game Info Edit
The Humvee ingame is armed with a .50 caliber M2 Browning Heavy Machine gun that is meant for engaging infantry and non/lightly armored vehicles. Although the Humvee is lethal against infantry, it has thin steel and glass armor. Infantry are also a potential threat to the Humvee, especially when they are armed with anti-vehicle weapons such as rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs). Tanks rip Humvees apart with their main cannons; with threats like these on the battlefield, the Humvee tends to avoid direct confrontations with other enemy vehicles.
What the Humvee lacks in firepower it makes up with speed. The Humvee can outrun most enemies, but has difficulty with tanks, due to the range of their weapon; so finding cover is better than running against tanks. Most weapons of 20mm caliber and higher can destroy Humvees with ease.
The HMMWV also has the ability to repair other vehicles, and so makes for a cheaper alternative to the Repair Tanks, more so if a commander is not of the Support role.
