AFRIT 3-ton Workshop Trailer

Notes: These trailers are all of the same general layout and design, and serve a number of purposes, including repair trailers, armorerís workshops, welding workshops, electronics and communications setups, electronics workshops, etc. They are two-axle four-wheel trailers, with axles at the front and rear, both of which are equipped with airbrakes. The trailer is off-road rated. They have fully-enclosed bodies with side and rear panels that hinge upwards and lock in place. The trailer comes with a large tent to cover the trailer, providing for more work space. The trailer comes with an integral 10 kW generator to provide power for components which require it, along with internal lighting and two fans in the roof of the trailer. The statistics below are for a bare trailer with no internal components; these must be purchased separately. The "3-ton" moniker actually refers to the nominal weight of the empty trailer, though this weight is actually closer to 4 tons.

Armscor 2-ton Shower Unit Trailer

Notes: This is basically a van-type office trailer body fitted out as a shower facility. The trailer may provide showers for up to eight personnel at one time, with the flow of the shower heads controlled by an outside operator, or if water is plentiful, by the personnel showering. The water is pumped from an outside source, with a filter unit being provided by the trailer along with pumps themselves (which are powered by a gas engine). The trailer has three heaters powered by gasoline (only one is required for operation, though all three may be used for really hot water). Internal lighting is provided by a battery, and the trailer comes with a tunnel tent which may be connected to a standard military tent to allow personnel to dry off and conduct other hygiene requirements. The trailer has a side door (for entry) and a rear door (for the connection of the tunnel tent). The pumps require about 2 kW, while the water heater is the equivalent of 1 kW between all three heaters. About 6 hours of fuel are provided for each device. The trailer has two axles and four wheels, but only mediocre off-road performance.

A variant of this trailer, the Office Trailer, is designed to be used in rear areas as a mobile command post, administrative unit, or other such facilities. This version is equipped with air conditioning (and/or heating for export purposes), a desk, two steel filing cabinets, a map table, a wall-mounted table which folds up and down, and at least two chairs. The Office Trailer has a double door in the middle of the left side; and the left side is also equipped with a roll-up canvas awning along with the necessary poles and guy ropes. In addition, the side door also has a screen door.

Armscor Dog Transporter Trailer

Notes: The chassis of this trailer is essentially a standard sort of 1-ton off-road trailer Ė albeit with better shock absorption. However, the cargo bed of the trailer is specially set up for dog transport, with ten cages (four on each side and two facing to the rear) and a large stowage box at the front for food and water for the dogs and to store the leashes, muzzles, dog dishes, and other such equipment necessary for the care of the dogs. The cages each have a wire mesh front which hinges downwards and may be covered with a roll-up canvas cover; the tops of the cages are ventilated. A fire extinguisher is also provided with the trailer. The trailer has the usual swing-down jockey wheel in the towing bar. Also provided in the cost of the trailer is the equipment for 10 dogs, including 400 kg of food and water. The Maintenance figure is for the trailer itself; donít forget the dogs!
