Ex Dutch Army FTF Tank Transporter, in livery of Magnaload, and sporting Ballast body in place of Fifth wheel.

Hopefully due to appear in the Heavy haulage playpen, at GDSF 2010.

I forgot to say, between the Dutch Army, and the present owner, this truck was run in artic form by Baldwins, moving cranes in Scotland.

 

It differs from the actual Magnaload FTF it represents, in as much as this one has Mack, non epicyclic axles, and Magnaload ran on Kirkstall epicyclic axles.

You forgot to mention it has a Detroit Diesel 2 stroke (non turbo) v12 engine.

Don't forget, with 475hp

 

The FTF's are still around at oldtimer show's here in Holland

About all of them are painted to represent heavy transport company's

 

The Dutch army also still have one, in it's original funtion as tank transporter and the flatbed used is an DAF YTS 10050

 

Most of the time it is loaded with an old Centurion tank

The combination appears at military show's and event's
