HEAT is a vehicle trainer that simulates a HMMWV in the rollover condition.

Marines are presented with various scenarios that increase in difficulty. The initial scenario teaches Marines to safely exit the vehicle when it is upside down.

As the difficulty of the training increases, Marines are required to help injured Marines get out as well. They are required to transport the Marine to a safe location and set up security around the simulated rollover site.

Scenarios typically run about 10 minutes.

Note: Most major U.S. Marine Corps bases have HEAT’s on site for use in Block 1 and Block 2 training.

  • Teaches Marines how to egress an up-armored HMMWV under various tactical conditions.

  • Teaches teamwork and presence of mind.
