   The Terex-Demag MAC-50 (Military All-terrain Crane) was developed to meet the USMC requirement. It is worth mentioning, that currently Terex-Demag produces one of the most extensive range of cranes, comparing with other manufacturers. The MAC-50 crane is a military version, based around components of the AC-50-1 commercial design. Initial contract for four cranes was awarded in 2005. Four prototypes were delivered to the USMC for verification testing in 2006. Full-rate production has begun in 2007. The US Marine Corps ordered the first batch of 100 MAC-50 cranes with possible follow-on order for additional 30 vehicles. Deliveries commenced in 2009.

   This military all-terrain crane has a lifting capacity of 45 t. It is used to lift heavy objects, such as construction or bridging materials, containers, vehicles and other cargo. This military crane is suitable for rapid deployment. The MAC-50 can perform it's tasks and then quickly redeploy to the next mission site.

   This military crane uses a standard commercial cab, which provides seating for two men. When operating, the MAC-50 is controlled from a separate one-man cab. Add-on armor kit can be fitted if necessary.

   The MAC-50 is powered by a Cummins QSC multi-fuel diesel engine, developing 305 hp. It is coupled to Allison transmission. All four axles are driven and steered. This all-terrain crane can ford water obstacles up to 1.5 m deep. The Terex-Demag MAC-50 can operate in climatic conditions ranging from -32C to +50C. This military crane can be airlifted by C-17 or C-5 cargo aircraft.
