ACMAT MTV WPK 6x6/8x8

Notes: The 6x6 is a larger version of the ACMAT WPK 4x4 found in French Medium Unarmored Vehicles. It has a great degree of similarity to other such trucks of its line, including the cab, most of the structural components, the engine, and many of the drive components. Perhaps the most significant difference is the 6x6 suspension. The cab, as on the 4x4, has a hatch in roof with a weapon mount able to take weapons up to .50/12.7mm in size. In addition to the standard load/troop carrier, there is a van/shelter body, and a model used to carry ISO containers or palletized loads.

The 8x8 version of the MTV is different in that there are no standard load/troop carriers. Instead, the 8x8 MTV is a PLS-type vehicle, used to carry ISO containers or palletized loads, and equipped with an Ampliroll 100 NB load-handling system to help load and unload the cargo by sliding it on rollers in the tipping flatbed. The passenger capacity is for an improvised troop seating arrangement.

ARIS Ark

Notes: Used primarily by Italian amphibious troops, the Ark is essentially an M-548 tracked prime mover with the front of the vehicle replaced by a boat-like hull, and the engine compartment made completely watertight. This transforms a previously barely-amphibious vehicle into one which can carry out naval landings and is amphibious without preparation. Other changes include the cab, which is somewhat higher and has watertight doors; improved bilge pumps; a snorkel-type device added to provide air for the engine during amphibious operations; and four ducted propellers have been added to the rear for propulsion in the water. The Ark is otherwise basically the same as the M-548 base vehicle.

Twilight 2000 Notes: This vehicle is not available in the Twilight 2000 timeline.

Berliet GBC 180

Notes: This is a Berliet GBC 8 KT that has undergone a major renovation program. The object is to save money by updating existing trucks that are still in decent structural shape. The upgrades include a more powerful engine, beefed-up suspension to increase load carrying ability, a new automatic transmission, better brakes, and a new cab made of steel and fiberglass. The new cab can take an add-on armor kit if desired, and can be equipped with air conditioning.

Berliet GBU 15

Notes: This is a heavy Dutch-built truck that was mainly used to transport NATO command posts and personnel, including the towing of the 20-ton command trailers used by the top elements of that command. Sideboards frame the basic cargo body, but these can be removed so the truck can carry containers or shelters, fuel or water tanks, or a low body. Over the commanderís position in the cab is a hatch with a weapon mount.

Renault TRM 180/200

Notes: These are trucks that all share a core chassis, but use different engines and suspension packages to yield trucks with different performance characteristics. They are derived from a commercial trucks brought up to military standards, and were designed to supply the needs of less advanced nations. They are thus easy to take care of and can tolerate a lot of abuse, neglect, and oddball locally-produced parts. The cab has a hatch with a mount for a light machinegun. In addition to a standard troop/cargo carrier, the trucks are available in shelter/van bodies or flatbed versions.
