Tankers, recovery trucks and heavy equipment transporters will be delivered to FMS customer Egypt.

Egypt is receiving an undisclosed number of M978A4 Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Truck (HEMTT) tanker vehicles, plus M984A4 HEMTT recovery trucks and M1070A1 Heavy Equipment Transporters from Oshkosh Defense.

The US company is providing the vehicles under a $26.07 million FMS deal from US Army Contracting Command, the DoD announced on 26 May.

Work will be completed by 31 January 2023.

According to Shephard Defence Insight, vehicles in the HEMTT family are already in service with the Egyptian armed forces.

The latest HEMTT vehicles feature a US Army Long Term Armor Strategy (LTAS)-compliant cab that can be augmented with a standardised, bolt-on LTAS-B kit, allowing forces to increase protection depending on mission requirements.
