Notes: This truck is similar to the Foden 10-ton truck featured in the NATO Combat Vehicle Handbook in that it is designed primarily for the transport of containerized loads, and is ill suited for the transport of troops or non-containerized loads. The vehicle has load-handling system that can raise or lower a fully loaded container from or to the ground, up to 15 tons in weight.
