US Army orders HDTs

3rd March 2021 - 17:53 GMT | by The Shephard News Team

Mack Defense is providing M917A3 non-armoured Heavy Dump Trucks, starting in May 2021.

The US Army ordered 99 Mack Defense M917A3 non-armoured Heavy Dump Trucks (HDTs), under a 2018 contract from the US DoD worth up to $296.4 million.

These vehicles feature heavier-duty rear axles, all-wheel drive, an increased suspension ride height and other features to meet US Army needs.

Deliveries of the Mack Defense M917A3 HDT will begin in May 2021 and will continue until May 2025.

The new Granite-based HDTs will help increase the US Army operational effectiveness and readiness, ‘while supporting mobility, counter-mobility, survivability and sustainment operations for the Joint Force’, Mack Defense announced on 3 March.

‘This order signifies the successful testing of non-armoured and armoured vehicles that we conducted in 2018 and 2019,’ said David Hartzell, president of Mack Defense.
