It took a while to figure out how I got in this old thread. :)

I do not know how many people looked at that image. I will re-post: . I am not positive of the terminology because I have never seen this exact model, nor can I find it now. The truck class is the HEMTT, Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Truck. The only five-axle version that I ever saw was the M1075 Palletized Load System, as seen in "Dark Knight Rises" . The M984 Wrecker is an eight-wheeled version of what was shown:

In Afghanistan I drove the M978 2500 Gal Fuel Tanker (my actual job) , but usually a M1120 Load Handling System (someone else's job)

I always wanted to drive the M1070 Heavy Equipment Transporter System

Well, nobody asked, so I will leave you guys alone. Rmay, thank you for sharing that beautiful example of four-wheel steering (and ten-wheel drive)!

Thank You for the thank you but the quote in bold always bothered me so here I will dig up the thread to correct it.

The truck is actually 4 AXLE steering and all proportional too. (aka the rear axles steer also)

Its technically a Marine job called an LVSR, another similar vehicle is the PLS (army but only 3 of its axles steer)

Gives you a nice reduction in turning radius, also fun to align on the hunter pit.

Cheers
Ryan

As I mentioned, I am familiar with the PLS, but only drove the four-axle LHS (and HEMTT).

HEMTT variants are fitted with power-assisted front tandem steering systems
Oshkosh HEMTT Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Truck - Army Technology

The front tandem provides steering. The rear tandem is nonsteering

Nowadays that even BMW has at least one FWD model, it seems like RWD is going to be more targetted to a few segments where it's seen as a "prestige" feature.
