The British TM 6-6 Truck

The British TM 6-6 Truck is a stretched version of the smaller TM 4-4 and thus as increased payload capacity. It can be used to transport various supplies including cargo containers and can be fitted with jib cranes to lift these off the flat bed section of the vehicle. The crane is mounted behind the cab.

Manufactured by Bedford since 1986, a total of 1045 were built for the British Army and some Middle East exports. It is no longer manufactured and is gradually being replaced with more modern trucks in the British Army.
