   The Renault Sherpa 2 is a French equivalent of the AM General's HMMWV. It is a light tactical military vehicle intended for projection forces and intervention units. It was first produced in 2007.

   The Sherpa 2 is a purpose-designed military vehicle, built for rugged, remote applications. It is well suited for desert conditions. It is designed to be highly mobile on difficult terrain.

  Basic version of the Sherpa 2 has a payload capacity of 2 200 kg. Vehicle provides seating for driver plus three passengers. There is also a rear loading area for additional soldiers gear and weapons. The Sherpa 2 can be used as a patrol carrier. It can also tow a trailer with a maximum weight of 3 500 kg.

   It is worth mentioning that the Sherpa has a higher ground clearance than the HMMWV.

Engine is coupled with an automatic transmission. A central tyre inflation system is optional. When fitted, a tyre pressure is adjusted from the driver's station on the move to suit various terrain conditions. Such system is very effective driving over sand, snow or mud.
