M911/M747 Heavy Equipment Transporter System (HETS)

The M911/M747 Heavy Equipment Transporter System (HETS) transports tanks and other heavy tracked and wheeled vehicles to and from the battlefield. It has been replaced by the M1070 tractor and M1000 semi-trailer, which is the Army's latest model HETS developed to accommodate the increased weight of the M1 Abrams Family of Main Battle Tanks.
