Danke an Andreas Richter für das obige Bild von einem Tag der offenen Tür!

+++

1986 wurde der Foden 6×6 Recovery Truck in die Britische Armee eingeführt!

Insgesamt wurden 333 Einheiten bestellt,

die bis heute (Stand 2012) Ihren Dienst versehen! 

Der Kran-Abschleppwagen ähnelt in vielen Dingen

der Zugmaschine für die FH70-Feldhaubitze,

verwendet jedoch einen wesentlich stärkeren Motor!

Der Hydraulik Kran hat eine Maximale Tragkraft von 11t

und ist daher ideal zur Instandsetzung

aller in der Britischen Armee eingesetzten logistischen Fahrzeuge!

Im 28 ENGR REGT WkSp (REME) wurden

einige dieser bulligen Fahrzeuge eingesetzt!

The Foden 6×6 recovery vehicle embodies Eka model AK6500 EA12 and

supercedes the Swedish Eka type D2030B

with fixed boom which was selected

for evaluation by the British Army.

The Foden 6×6 Recovery entered service in 1986

with an initial order for 333 units.

It retains the performance and many of the

external features of the FH-70 Gun Tractor,

but uses the more powerful

Perkins (Rolls-Royce) Eagle engine.

The hydraulically-operated folding boom crane

has a maximum lift capacity of 11,000kg

and is designed to recover all British Army

in-service logistic support vehicles.

Many of them were

 held by28 Amphibious Engineer Regiment Workshops (REME).

The British Army currently has 333 (Year 2012)!
