Wolfhound on Trial and Another New Truck

Wolfhound_MOD_45151644

Wolfhound is the logistics version of the Force protection Mastiff and is designed to carry cargo on its open topped load bed

Whilst I am on the subject of vehicles, yet another logistics vehicle is also about to enter service, as part of the C Vehicle PFI, which mainly covers things like forklift loaders, JCB’s and assorted another plant, ALC also provide a number of Iveco Trakker based trucks.

I looked at trucks in one of the FDR series, here

But there is a new one to add to the ever-growing list of British Army vehicles.

ALC has contracted with Thompson’s to supply a tipping body for a protected 8×8 version of the Iveco Trakker to be called the Self Loading Dump Trucks (protected) or SLDT(P).

The US does things differently, of course, they realise that proliferating vehicles just means poor serviceability, low availability and high costs so they simply have a tipping body module for their DROPS equivalent.

Fleet coherence you say, please, stop talking sense, how many time have I told you before!
