ROCK ISLAND ARSENAL, Ill. – Rock Island Arsenal (RIA) – Joint Manufacturing and Technology Center (JMTC) is once again improving Soldier protection on the battlefield. RIA-JMTC’s most recent program in this endeavor is the Heavy Equipment Transporter (HET) Urban Survivability Kit (HUSK).
The HET is a military logistics vehicle designed to transport, deploy, and evacuate heavy military vehicles. With its semitrailer (HETS), it is able to transport vehicles as large as the M1A2 Abrams tank.
With its rich history of improving mobility and survivability for the Warfighter with add-on armor, mobile maintenance units and ambulance upgrades, RIA-JMTC is the ideal manufacturer for this new design.
