Did Mack offer the RD 800 in AWD maybe for military applications? I know the set back axle RM was often offered in AWD and set up as municipal plow.

Also did the RD and RM have the same length hood only with the RM set back axle and shorter fenders?

 Was the RM offered with a V8 Mack?

I build models and want to get some info for realism.

The RD800 was offered in AWD configuration. Not only in military applications but also in civil.

The Mack RM was also available with Mack V8 (E9)

Wow! rare beast now.  Someone mentioned that the Israel military might have had RD800 AWD and some might have been log trucks. A RM V8 is also very interesting, it seems to have the room.

RD800 AWD was built and tested in both Canadian and American logging industries in a tractor multiple trailer application.

I was on vacation up to Mt. Katahdin camping and we drove up into paper company lands and there is not anyway you could place another log on the trucks that run the golden road. The triaxles had bunkers higher than I see around my area you gave the trucks the right away it was their road.
