Those Israeli Defense Force (IDF) Macks


Recommended Posts

This was a prototype RD-8886SX submitted by Mack Trucks to the IDF in competition with Autocar, MAN (who won the tender) and Mercedes-Benz for transporting 60 plus ton Merkava main battle tanks. After failing to get the sale, Mack sold it to the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF).

Note the cab roof heat shield and the European style convex main mirrors in lieu of the U.S. style (at the time) flat glass mirrors.
