The British Army has selected the FastTrax consortium (led by Haliburton Brown & Root) to provide it with 92 new heavy equipment transport trailers and tractors. The trucks will be provided under a 30 year contract for $440 million. The contract includes drivers and mechanics, who will be civilian contract employees in peacetime and (in wartime) will be called into service as Territorial Reservists. These contractor personnel will comprise a third of the personnel in the Royal Logistics Corps units that operate the transporters. Every Army uses transporters of this type to move tanks and other heavy equipment. Doing so saves wear-and-tear on the heavy vehicles, and on the roads, and is faster than driving tanks on their own tracks.--Stephen V Cole
