The HSMV Flyer military four wheel drive. The flyer was aimed at the now cancelled, or dormant (depending on who you talk to) Australian Project Mulgara. The Flyer has however been sold to at least two "Asian countries" according to "usually reliable sources".
The Flyer has a 2.1 litre turbo-diesel mounted in the rear,
a three speed automatic transmission and part-time four wheel drive.
It has an unladen weight of 1.2 tons and can carry
1.2 tons across country.
Right: the High Speed Engineering Vehicle or HSEV
for the Australian Army.
This "tractor" can do 110kph on the highway
with its air-bag suspension in operation
so it does not need a truck to carry it about the country.
It is more likely to appear in your rear-view mirror
than to hold you up.
At work, the suspension is locked-out
to give typical tractor characteristics.
