Abstract:

A lift link for external lift of dual High Mobility Multi-Wheeled Vehicles HMMWVs includes first and second ends, the inner portion of each end pivotally attached to inner and outer sliders, respectively, said sliders communicating to provide axial movement for said lift link. In operation, a pair of lift links are attached to abutted rear ends of two HMMWVs. The links allow at least 4 degrees of movement for easy hook-up while maintaining the rigid platform necessary to transport the attached vehicles by helicopter lift.
