M746 for Pascalbausset on request...
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

The M746 build by Ward La France is a HET.
Standardised by US Army in 1971, the first vehicles are completed in 1975. Production go till 1977 and 125 trucks are build.

The M746 was designed for use with the M747 60 tons semi trailer.

It served mainly in Europe and during his service there was two other tank transporter tractors: the M123 Big Mack and the Oshkosh C-HET M911.

Here a pic taken in Germany

I believe this is the vehicle we tested at the Armor Board in '71-'72 and was colloquially referred to as the "HET-70". It had a bench seat that would seat 8 across, IIRC. (Daddy, are we there yet?")


The Het 70 is another truck. Very similar but another. Its an US/Germany project for a 4 axles truck tractor .He was tested and never enter in production. US developpe the Ward La France M746 and Germany the Faun SLT Elephant.

Thanks for that clarification, Pascal. Would you (or anyone else) happen to have a picture of the HET 70? (The test period at the Board was '72-'73, not '71 as I stated previously). The test was well after the MBT 70 was laid to rest and seemed a general proposal for a new generation of transporter regardless of where tank development went.
