The chicken plate is what's found on the HMMWV weapon station. Not sure about the shield going around the back end of the ring mount

Looks pretty similar to the ones on the MTVR's. With that said, there's got to be a kit out there. Now the next question..where?
Also, I'm thinking your pic is using a Lightweight Weapon Station of some sort rather than a M66 ring mount.

You are correct about it being a LWS.


Is there anybody here that can measure and take detailed pictures of the "basic" HMMWV gunner protection kit like the ones in the pictures?

I think I'm going to make my own from aluminum.

The Objective-Gunners Protection Kit (O-GPK) in picture 3, I may be able to help with as long as it's not classified. That's the same O-GPK (mounted on an M1114 Turret) that the MRAP Gun Trucks use.

EDIT: Sorry, the O-GPK in picture 3 is classified. But!!!!! I can provide you with the Part number and NSN for the Gunners Protection Kit (GPK) in pictures 1,2 and 4. It's BAE part number 6431507-01M1 and NSN 5340-01-536-9918. The FLIS price is $2,677.89. I can't find any drawings here that are not propriatary so it's going to have to be physical measurements, which I can't get for you.

The kit itself is DEMIL Code A, so maybe................

I have this rear shield, and the plate, and most of the mount arms available.
The turret part below the rear shield not available.
Parts that mount to the square plate pictured are also for early M1151 Humvee's.

If the hmmwv/LWS turret is smaller than the m66, I'm thinking it might be easier to switch to the LWS, and then locate the parts I want for that.
