   The Foden Medium Dump Truck (MDT) was developed to meet the British Army requirement. The MDT is based on commercial Foden Alpha A36R truck, modified for military use. It competed against a Volvo design. The Foden won the competition and was awarded a contract for 55 vehicles in 2000. Production commenced in 2001 and deliveries to the British Army were completed in 2003.

   The Foden medium dump truck is used for military construction. It can haul excavated materials, as well as general construction materials or cargo. Frame of the vehicle was reinforced. It is fitted with a heavy duty 10 m capacity tip body. It can carry loads up to 20 t. Vehicle can also tow trailers with a maximum weight of 14 t.

   This military truck has a sleeper cab. It accommodates driver and two passengers.

   The Foden military dump truck is powered by a Cummins ISM380E turbocharged diesel engine, developing 400 hp. It meets EURO III emission requirements. Vehicle has a 6x6 configuration. Some vehicles were fitted with deep wading kits.

   Production of all Foden brand trucks ceased in 2006.

   In 2010 new Medium Dump Truck was ordered by the British MoD to replace the Fodens. It is based on IVECO Trakker 8x8 chassis. There is also a Self-Loading Dump Truck on IVECO Trakker chassis, which replaced the previous Volvo FL12.
