Mack Defense proudly displayed a growing line of products at the 2013 AUSA Annual Meeting. Held every October in Washington, D.C., it is the largest defense exposition and professional development forum in North America with over 30,000 attendees.
Highlighted in this year’s booth were the versatile Mack Defense Sherpa family of vehicles, a Mack Defense Granite Water Tanker and an armored Volvo Construction Equipment (VCE) L180G Wheel Loader that featured an adjustable ground mobility system (AGMS) built by Faun Trackway USA. Rounding out our broad defense portfolio was a VCE EC220 crawler excavator with shear attachment, popular in federal recycling and disposition applications.
Two armored vehicles – a militarized commercial truck and a wheel loader – were debuted by Mack Defense, LLC at the annual AUSA Meeting and Exposition in Washington, D.C. in October 2012.
The Kerax 8×8 trucks are tractors of a new line of commercial vehicles adapted for the specific needs of the armed forces. The Kerax family of trucks are best suited for logistical missions, but can be modified for tactical missions with improved off-road capabilities, an armored cab, and a self-defense weapons system. Also, through a partnership with Volvo Construction Equipment, an armored wheel loader was featured for the first time. This armored tractor provides added durability for work in difficult environments.
We didn’t just show off trucks though. Mack the Bulldog made an appearance at the show. Click on our YouTube link below to see the Mack icon strut his stuff.
Mack Defense, LLC was proud to display a full lineup of unique military vehicles to the 53,000-plus attendees at Eurosatory 2012 in Paris. The highlight of the show was the debut of our newest truck, the Mack Sherpa. The Mack Sherpa is a 4×4 tactical vehicle designed to provide infantry forces with the best mobility and payload in its category. This vehicle features the Hawkeye 105mm Weapon System, which is a high-performance howitzer that is contained in a lightweight, modular design. The Mack Sherpa is available in a number of configurations to meet your needs. Overall reactions were strong from attendees toward the strength, reliability and advanced engineering that is at the heart of every Mack truck.
