Description

The M1045, M1045A1, and M1045A2 HMMWVs were TOW Missile Carrier configurations of the HMMWV family. The M1045A2 is an improved version of the basic variant of the M1045 HMMWV family designed and manufactured by the American Company AM-General. The M1045A2 Tube-Launched, Optical-Tracked, Wire-Guided (TOW) missile variant replaced the M1045 and the M1046 HMMWV variants. It provides ground mobility for the TOW missile system giving commanders a more flexible and time sensitive, medium to long range, anti-armor capability. Marine Armor Kit (MAK) can be installed on the M1045A2. The M1045A2 is used to transport and launch TOW anti-tank missiles to defeat armoured vehicles. The M1045A2 was intended to replace previous iterations of both the M1045 series and the M1046/A1 types.

Armament
A Tow anti-tank missile launcher unit is mounted on the top of the M1045A2. Six missiles are carried in the cargo compartment. The missiles carries a high-explosive, armour-piercing, shaped-charge warhead that when its hits an enemy tank, produces a concentrated heat stream that can burn through all but the latest composite armour. The crew of M1045A2 can quickly dismount the TOW system for ground use, if needed. The weapons platform can be traversed 360 degrees and the launcher elevated to 20 degrees and depressed to 10 degrees. A 7.62mm machine gun can be mounted to the left side of the TOW launcher for the self-protection of the crew and vehicle.
Design and protection
The layout of the M1045A2 is similar to the basic variant of the HMMWV with the engine at the front, crew compartment in the middle and cargo area at the rear. The M1045, M1045A1, and M1045A2 provided added ballistic protection for TOW system components, crew, and ammunition over the M966 series.
Mobility
The chassis, mechanical components and general performance are the same as other models of the standard Humvee M998 series. The M1045 A2 is motorized with a V-8 6.5l Diesel engine coupled to an 4-speed automatic transmission with a maximum input torque rating of 451 lb.-ft. The M1045A2 can climb 60% slopes and traverse a side slope of up to 40% fully loaded. The M1045A2 can ford hard bottom water crossing up to 80 cm without a deep water fording kit and up to 1.5 m with the kit.
Accessories
The difference between the M1045 and M1045A1 TOW carriers and the M1046 and M1046A1 TOW carriers was that the M1045 types did not have self-recovery winches and the M1046 types did. The M1045A2 models had new bumpers, in addition to all the other A2 series improvements, which made the vehicles slightly longer.
