General Information[edit | edit source]
The M939 is a general purpose 6x6 heavy truck designed by AM General in the late 1970s. The M939 is designed to succeed its predecessors, the M39 Heavy Truck and the M809 Heavy Truck. The M939 is a general purpose vehicle, meaning that it can have a large amount of uses, such as a cargo truck, recovery vehicle, military transport, etc. The M939 was adopted by the US Army in 1982 and production of the truck had begun. The M939 is currently used by 15 countries (including the United States).
The M939 weighs 22,750 lb (10,320 kg), is 25 ft 7 in (7.80 m) long, 8 ft 2 in (2.49 m) wide, and 9 ft 7 in (2.92 m) high. The M939 uses the Cummins 6CTA8.3 engine which can develop 240 hp (180 kW) at 2100 rpm. The M939 includes a new automatic transmission, cab, and hood/fender unlike its predecessors. It can reach up to a top speed of 86 km/h (53.44 miles).
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
The M939 is only used by the US Army.
- This vehicle has no armament and basically no armour. It must either be protected or kept away from the frontline action. The engine and tires can be disabled by small arms fire, meaning a lone infantryman can theoretically disable you with a few bursts into the front grill.
- The Transport variant can carry a total of 18 people. This is the highest of any vehicle in-game as of A14. The Ural 4320, Ural 375D and the MAN HX all carry the same number of people.
- The Logistics variant carries 11 people, and trades seven passenger slots to carry logistic supplies.
- The driver of the vehicle loads and unloads the supplies using the RMB and LMB respectively. You can carry a maximum of 3000 points worth of supplies, which you can split between Construction and Ammunition at your discretion.
