   The International Harvester SF2670 tank transporter was introduced in the late 1980s. It is based on the International Harvester S-line commercial design. It is worth noting that International Harvester Australia, a subsidiary of the US manufacturer, has a long relationship with the Australian Army. The International Harvester SF2670 replaced the Leyland Scammell Contractor in Australian Army service. This prime mover was intended to transport the Leopard AS1 main battle tanks, which replaced the more heavier Centurion. A total of 88 International Harvester tank transporters were ordered by the Australian Army.

   In the late 1980s, together with the International Harvester SF2670, new semi-trailers were introduced. It is used for carrying armored vehicles, engineering plant, cargo and other large equipment. Two types of semi-trailers were produced.

   The International Harvester tractor truck is equipped with a sleeper cab for the crew. It is an essential item for transporting tanks over long haulage distances.

   Vehicle is powered by Cummins NTC 365 diesel engine, developing 365 hp. The International Harvester SF2670 is faster and more powerful than its predecessor.

   Today both the Leopard AS1 and the SF2670 are due to be decommissioned with the introduction of M1A1 Abrams tank, which weights over 60 tons and requires a more capable tractor truck and associated semi-trailer. A German MAN TGA 8x8 tank transporter was selected. It will be in service with the Australian Army for many years to come.
