Description

Military Trucks Archive 05 OSHKOSH M1070 Series, Britain's Fifth-Generation Tank Transporter

Number five in Kelsey’s exciting tank-transporter series brings the story right up-to-date by covering the development and service of the Oshkosh M1070F, the Caterpillar-engined monster that has replaced the Scammell Commander.

The M1070F is based on the US Army’s standard heavy equipment tractor – the M1070 – and was purchased under an innovative private finance initiative (PFI) competition that required the successful contractor to design, build, finance, maintain and operate the vehicles for a period of 20 years. The contract called for 92 tractors, together with 89 semi-trailers, all of which were to be delivered to the MoD by October 2003.

This latest publication explores the politics of the PFI programme, describes the truck in detail, and provides an insight into how the trucks are used.

Having been in service now for almost 20 years, most of these trucks have now seen action in Iraq and Afghanistan, and many have been put through a mid-life rebuild… yet there is still no hint of what might be used to replace them.
