THEORY OF OPERATION
The Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Trucks (HEMTT) Tanker Armor Module (TAM) consists of a rear panel
assembly; left and right side lower, upper, and access panel assemblies; a top panel assembly; two front panel
assemblies; two wheel well panel assemblies; and two wheel house panel assemblies.
The TAM consists of armor panels mounted to the existing tanker pump module to protect the components within
the module. The rear panel assembly incorporates two swing out doors that replace the pump module rear (swing
up) doors. The upper and lower side panel assemblies attach to the pump module and the rear panel. The top
panel assembly includes two hinged access doors and is attached to the rear and upper side panels. The front and
wheel well panel assemblies attach to the pump module.
All armor panels are attached to the pump module with brackets and hardware provided in the TAM kit. Replace-
ment lights, ladder, and rail assembly are also provided with the TAM kit.
The armor panels require material handling equipment (hoist, forklift, etc.) to position on the pump module due to
their weight. Armor panel weights are listed in WP 0002.
