Bartoletti Type B.10

Notes: This is a basic cargo trailer with one axle and two tires, and decent off-road performance. It is of all-steel construction, with a drop tailgate, overrun brakes, and a dolly wheel on the front for when the trailer is not being towed. It is a simple design. The Type B.10 may also be fitted with a water tank in lieu of the cargo body; this water tank has an internal non-corrosive liner, a large manhole on top for filling of the tank, gravity-fed taps on the side (one 65mm gate valve and two 26mm taps), and an extra folding stabilizer bar at the rear.

Bartoletti Type B.20

Notes: A larger version of the Type B.10, the Type B.20 has the same general design and even uses the same wheels and tires, along with some other components. The wheels have airbrakes, and the dolly wheel is both retractable and removable. In addition, two stabilizers may be lowered at the rear to further support the trailer when it is not being towed. In addition to the basic cargo body, the Type B.20 may be fitted with shelter bodies, containers, pallets, or even items such as generators and radar sets.

Bartoletti Type 2L-30M

Notes: This is a light trailer of all-steel construction and with axles and wheels on each end of the trailer, equipped with airbrakes. Though the trailer is reasonably long, it is rather narrow, and this limits the types of loads it may carry. The front axle is steerable, and the suspension is capable of good off-road performance. The trailer has a drop tailgate and drop sides.

Bartoletti Type B.40 MGB

Notes: This flatbed trailer was designed specifically for carrying components of the British-built Williams Fairey Medium Girder Bridge (MGB), but can be used for other purposes with preparation. It uses the same wheels as the B.10 and B.20, along with airbrakes. The cargo deck is basically a steel platform with tie-down points. The design is otherwise similar to the B.10 and B.20.

Bartoletti Type 24RD

Notes: This is a large flatbed trailer designed primarily for the transport of containerized loads, especially NATO ISO containers, palletized loads, and large fuel bladders. It uses the 510mm wheels common to many Bartoletti trailers, along with axles front and rear, each with two sets of two tires (for a total eight); the wheels have airbrakes. The trailer has lockdown points for ISO containers which double as tie-down points for other loads.

Notes: The 2M-55 is a medium tank trailer of basic design and construction, and designed primarily for the transport of fuel. The trailer has axles front and rear, with a total of four tires. The trailer is equipped with a ladeder on both sides for climbing to the top of the tank, a large filling mouth on top in the center, a rod-type fuel level indicator, a remote-control foot valve, two gravity-fed fuel valves, and a pump (which requires an external power source), along with hoses, valves, etc.

Bartoletti 2PX

Notes: This trailer is designed for the transport of light armored vehicles and light-to-medium soft-skinned vehicles, as well as engineering equipment and vehicles. The 2PX is designed to be towed by standard vehicles (it is not a semi-trailer), and has axles on both ends of the trailer with a total of eight tires. The bed is quite low and the 2PX therefore has limited off-road performance. Front and back axles are steerable. The trailer has rear loading ramps along with loading dollies for equipment which cannot simply drive onto the trailer. The wheels are equipped with airbrakes. The sides of the load bed have removable metal fence-type sides.

Bartoletti Type TCS-60 BO

Notes: This is a large tank transporter semi-trailer designed for heavy tanks such as the Ariete. Though it is specifically designed to be towed by the IVECO 320-45 semi-tractor, most other military semi-tractor trucks may tow it as well. The trailer has three axles, with a total of 12 tires, with airbrakes and parking brakes. The trailer is not really meant for off-road use, but has some limited off-road capability provided the ground is reasonably hard and even. There are supports in the front of the trailer for when it is not being towed which are pneumatically deployed. The load bed is equipped with adjustable track guides, along with a system of rollers and pulleys. Two spare tires and wheels come with the trailer, as well as the tools and equipment necessary for securing the vehicle.

Bartoletti TCS-50 BO

Notes: Like the German SLT 50-2, the TCS-50 BO was designed for use with the abortive MBT-70 project, and only later produced for use with other tanks. It is a tank transporter semi-trailer using four axles and a total of 16 tires, plus a spare. It is fairly low-slung, designed to not exceed a height of 4.5 meters even when carrying a tall tank like the M-60, in order to be able to use as many underpasses and tunnels as possible. The trailer is equipped with adjustable track guides, rollers and pulleys to aid in taking the vehicle aboard and securing it; in addition, the usual complement of tools and securing materials is provided.

Cometto MPS-50/MPS-60

Notes: These two tank transporter semi-trailers are of similar design, one carrying a greater weight than another. The MPS-50 has two axles at the rear; the MPS-60 has four. Each axle has a total of four tires; two spares are also carried under the frame. Both are fitted with a five-speed roller and pulley system to aid in loading vehicles. They have adjustable track guides, and the standard complement of tools and materials to secure the vehicle. A nice touch is a 150-liter water tank. Both trailers are virtually identical except for the suspensions and have the same dimensions. A problem with these two trailers is the length of the load deck; at just under 8 meters, some vehicles simply donít fit or barely fit.

Cometto S-53

Notes: This large tank transporter may also be fitted out to carry large equipment, containers, or palletized loads. The trailer has an astounding ten axles, each with a total of four tires. Each axle has independent transmission and are steerable, and the trailer is quite capable off-road. The rear loading ramps are raised and lowered hydraulically, and the trailer has a small APU to run winches and pulleys to assist in loading the trailer. This trailer, as far as I know, is still awaiting customers.
