Egypt Orders HET Tank Transporters


* het w. m1 tank abrams (128.61 KB. 800x513 - viewed 89 times.)

The M1070 Heavy Equipment Transport/Tractor (HET) lives up to its name, towing trailers that can carry tanks, armored vehicles or heavy construction equipment and their crews, in order to minimize wear and maximize speed. Egypt has a substantial program centered on agreements to purchase and assemble over 1,000 M1 Abrams tanks, and those tanks need HET trucks.

Nov 12/09: A $20.3 million firm-fixed-price contract for 44 heavy equipment tractors (M1070 HETs), 44 Fontaine 635NL trailers, 9 spare engines for HETs, and ancillary services for the above mentioned vehicles, trailers, and engines. Work is to be performed in Oshkosh, WI (71.15%), Springfield, AL (27.54%), and Egypt (1.31%) with an estimated completion date of Aug 30/11. One bid was solicited with one bid received by the U.S. Army TACOM Contracting Center AMSTA-TAC-ATBC in Warren, MI (W56HZV-07-C-0594). See also Oshkosh release.

Sept 26/07: Oshkosh Truck Corp. in Oshkosh, WI receives a $16.8 million firm-fixed-price contract for 35 HETs, 35 trailer kits, training services and support, and field service representative support. Work will be performed in Oshkosh, WI (71%), Princeton, KY (22%), Ann Arbor, MI (2.55%), Indianapolis, IN (0.45%), and Egypt (4%), and is expected to be completed by Dec 31/09. This was a sole source contract initiated on Jan 25/07 by the U.S. Army Tank-Automotive and Armaments Command in Warren, MI (W56HZV-07-C-0594).

According to Oshkosh’s corporate release, this is the second contract in 2007 for Oshkosh Truck and the Egyptian Ministry of Defense. Oshkosh is providing initial orders of its Medium Tactical Truck (MTT), valued at $4.9 million, and also supplies the Egyptian military with its M977 HEMTT 8X8 heavy truck. The first Oshkosh Truck military vehicles went into service in Egypt in 1990, and have been fully supported by Oshkosh since that time.
