Mobile repair stations allow high-quality service for HMMWV off-road vehicles right in the combat zone. One such car on the Iveco 6X6 chassis costs 358,000 euros.

The Armed Forces of Ukraine will receive modern mobile service stations. They will allow the repair of HMMWV (military Hummer) in the field. This was reported on the Facebook page of the Come Back Alive Foundation, which purchased the equipment.

In total, the volunteers purchased six such stations for a total cost of 2.148 million euros (358 thousand euros per unit). The army is now in dire need of such equipment.

The fact is that several hundred HMMWVs are now in operation in the Armed Forces of Ukraine. At various times, the United States transferred both armored versions of the army Hummer, and lightweight versions with an awning. They are used in the MTR, the Marine Corps and the Airborne Assault Forces.

Maintenance and serious repairs of HMMWV are carried out by specially trained specialists and there are not many of them. Sometimes damaged or faulty cars have to be transported hundreds of kilometers to the place of repair. This takes time, fuel and money.

Mobile repair stations solve this problem, because thanks to them professional repairs can be carried out virtually near the front line and quickly return HMMWVs to units. They are equipped with all the necessary equipment and tools.

Mobile service stations are built on the chassis of all-wheel drive three-axle Iveco off-road vehicles, then some are adapted for off-road and, if necessary, can get to hard-to-reach places.
