The MET six-axle drop deck trailer is part of the Oshkosh family of trailers and is interoperable with the Oshkosh Enhanced Heavy Equipment Transporter System (EHETS) M1300 tractor.

Combined with the EHETS M1300 tractor, the MET can transport combat vehicles weighing up to 60 tons and meet European Highway Road Network Accessibility (RNA) requirements for payloads up to 45 tons. The 70-foot-long trailer is capable of navigating under four-meter overpasses and the hydraulically adjustable suspension allows it to be lowered or raised for obstacle clearance and fording water crossings.

The primary mission of the MET is to load, secure, and transport Bradley Fighting Vehicles (BFV), Armored Multi-Purpose Vehicles (AMPV), Paladin, and Field Artillery Ammunition Support Vehicles (FAASV).

“We are honored to provide the U.S. Army with advanced trailer systems designed to deliver mission-critical equipment and cargo across any terrain worldwide,” stated Pat Williams, Chief Programs Officer for Oshkosh Defense. “The MET stands as a testament to Oshkosh Defense’s unwavering commitment to harnessing cutting-edge technology to deliver solutions that effectively address the complex logistical challenges faced by the U.S. Army and its international allies.”

Oshkosh was awarded the five-year Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) MET production contract in November 2023.

The MET trailers operate with many fielded tractors, including with the Oshkosh (EHETS) tractor.
