Germany’s Goldhofer AG (Stand 08- E5), a market leader for transport equipment in the field of general and heavy-duty road haulage and oversized cargo transportation, is presenting its military transport vehicles designed to provide trouble-free operation in the harshest climates and most challenging situations.

The acquisition of Schopf Maschinenbau GmbH in 2013 extended the company’s aircraft tractor portfolio. With their cushioned tow hitch, Schopf tow tractors are capable of handling almost every type of aircraft and are in use with armed forces worldwide.

Quality engineering and outstanding reliability are the hallmark of Goldhofer’s products for military applications, with the design focus on flexibility, economy and ease of operation. The company’s special vehicle range includes tank transporters in three categories: on-road,

off-road and dual-purpose. The STZ-H6 Tridem semi-trailer pictured features hydraulic force-steered axles and a low loading height, and is available with air or hydraulic suspension, up to nine axles, and up to a triple extendible loading platform.
