Thanks for posting

Chassis is basic Oshkosh Military heavy hauler specs same as for hauling an Abrams.

41, are all those modular sections of that Oskosh standard stamping or is that tractor totally purpose built?

The cab is purpose built on modified M911 chassis and drive line.

Saw one of these up by Minot, pulling a van trailer. The trailer looked to be a bit over width, probably 10-12 feet wide and tall and long too. Looks like they tried to give it the proportions of a normal cabover tractor trailer rig though in hopes the Russians looking at aerial photos would think it's a normal trailer. They built their barracks/offices for the missile crews similar, looks like a normal ranch house on a hill from a distance. Get up close and you see it's 2 stories tall and a hundred or so feet long!
