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

the cargo bed side rails. The seats can be folded down and stowed when not in

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
