A 6×6 Lightweight Recovery Vehicle (LWRV) variant of its High Mobility Transporter (HMT) is being progressed by Supacat under the UK Ministry of Defence’s Protected Mobility Engineering & Technical Support (PMETS) contract, the company announced on 23 January.

A total of four Supacat LWRVs are due to be released to the British Army later this Spring, Supacat noted.

The LWRV solution uses four in-service 4×4 Jackal 2 HMTs and adds Supacat’s Extenda detachable third axle to provide the recovery module and configure the 4×4 Jackal 2 as a 6×6 Coyote. It also introduces Supacat’s Supalift recovery technology, which will enable off-road recovery of vehicles such as the Foxhound protected patrol vehicle and Jackal and Coyote HMT platforms in difficult conditions.
