The M983 is a tractor unit for use with the trailer-mounted MIM-104 Patriot missile system. It can also be used with the Interim Stryker Recovery System or other trailers. An earlier variant fitted with a 30 KW generator and crane mounted behind the cab was used to tow the MGM-31 Pershing Erector Launcher in CONUS. The M983A2/A4 Light Equipment Transporter (LET) tractor is mainly used to transport construction and engineer equipment. It has a 45,000lb 2-speed hydraulic winch mounted behind the cab, used to load the trailer. It does not have a self-recovery winch.

Trumpeter often recommends using Tamiya X and XF paints – click here to purchase!
