LTT / HMT / M1101 M1102 HMMWV Trailers

The High-Mobility Trailer (HMT) is a companion for the military fleet of High-Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWVs). Although it can be towed by other pintle hook equipped military vehicles, it was developed for the HMMWV as its prime mover.

Troubles arose after the start of deliveries in 1997 resulting in an order to deadline the entire fleet. Those problems were resolved by 2002 and the HMT, with modifications, was finally released to the field without reservations. To symbolize the new beginning, the HMT was renamed Light Tactical Trailer (LTT).

The Light Tactical Trailer is known by a number of designations. As noted above, the Light Tactical Trailer (LTT) was originally known as the High Mobility Trailer (HMT). The M1101 and M1102 are the model numbers of the trailer, configured for general cargo use. The basic chassis, with no cargo body, is used as a platform for many military systems. The chassis is called the LTT-HC Chassis except by the Marine Corps who call it the LTT-MCC Marine Corps Chassis.

These pages describe the history and models of the LTT/HMT in more detail, with more photos:
