History of the Caterpillar 972G Armoured Wheeled plant loader
The vehicles are Caterpillar DV104 "Armoured Heavy Wheeled Tractors".
They are based on the commercial Caterpillar 972G wheeled loader.
But, by the time they had been armoured for the MoD by the specialist military contractor Penman Engineering and further modified by Caterpillar UK, they ended up costing £560,000 each.
Delivered to the Army in the Spring of 2001, they have remained unused and are now being sold by the MoD's preferred vehicle dealer.
Armored Caterpillar 972G were developed specifically to keep RAF airfields open during wartime. Their job was to act as pathfinders, clearing debris from runways and filling in bomb craters. The major threat to the drivers was unexploded bomblets on the runways, so the vehicles were fully protected.
Other mine clearance tools can also be fitted and the rig is actually sold as a "mine clearance vehicle".
