DRS Technologies Wins New Contract For M1000 HET Trailers

Recent order is the follow-on production contract associated with the low-rate initial production of six trailers delivered for government test and evaluation

By CBR Staff Writer

DRS Technologies has received an order valued over $100 million to manufacture 270 M1000 Heavy Equipment Transporter (HET) trailers for the US Army.

The M1000 HET trailer is designed and manufactured by the company’s DRS Sustainment Systems division, and the work for this contract would be performed at its heavy manufacturing facility in West Plains, Missouri.

Trailer deliveries would take place later this year. At the completion of this order, DRS Technologies would have manufactured more than 2,600 HET trailers for the US Army, said the company.

DRS said that the M1000 HET is engineered to transport the M1 Abrams Main Battle Tanks over primary and secondary roads, or cross-country over rough terrain.
