Dear Half-Mast,

Can you confirm that a SINCGARS radio installation kit for the up-armored FMTV (M1083A1P2) is the same kit used in the non-armored FMTV?

Dear Sergeant,

Although that seems logical, it’s not the case; they are different. See the following table for the NSNs of the various FMTV LTAS variant kits.
