M1078 Standard Cargo Truck

The M1078 Standard Cargo Truck is designed to transport cargo and soldiers. The M1078 has a payload capacity of 5,000 pounds and to facilitate loading/unloading, the bed side rails are mounted on hinges and can be lowered. The cargo bed can be equipped with an optional bench seat kit for transport of soldiers. The bench seats are constructed of a non-wood material and attach to the cargo bed side rails. The seats can be folded down and stowed when not in use. Soldiers are assisted climbing in and out of the cargo bed area with the aid of a ladder stowed on the vehicle when not in use. A canvas and bows kit is available to keep soldiers and cargo protected from the elements. The M1078 can be equipped with an optional electrically operated MHE and self-recovery winch kit capable of fore and aft vehicle recovery operations. The MHE has a lift capacity of 1,500 pounds. The winch has 308 feet of line capacity and 10,000 pounds bare drum line pull at 110% overload.
