Tactical Support Vehicle Gains Loadbeds From Marshall
The Wolfhound Tactical Support Vehicle which has just entered operational service in Afghanistan is fitted with a load bed built by Marshall Vehicle Engineering, part of Cambridge based Marshall Land Systems.

Utilising a number of Military off the Shelf (MOTS) components, including drop sides and tail boards, Marshall VE delivered the load beds in less than three months following the award of a contract from load bed designers, Ricardo plc.

“Our knowledge of military load beds has been developed over many years, indeed decades and ranges from the supply of large logistic loadbed systems for the UK MOD Support Vehicle programme, of which nearly 4,500 have been delivered, to small utility systems for vehicles such as the Iveco LMV and Renault Sherpa Light. The Wolfhound contract demonstrates that within MLS we have both the knowledge and the manufacturing experience to deliver the quality solutions our customers want and to deliver them on time,” said Peter Callaghan, Chief Executive of Marshall Land Systems.

Wolfhound can carry both palletised loads or loose stores in high threat areas making the vehicle capable of offering support to a range of users in Afghanistan.

Wolfhound is part of the Tactical Support Vehicle programme which has seen over 400 armoured support trucks ordered by the UK to accompany patrols and carry the essential supplies such as water and ammunition.
