   The German MAN TGA 8x8 tractor truck was selected as the new heavy lift vehicle for the Australian Army. It replaces the previous International Harvester SF2670 tank transporter, which entered service in the 1980s and was intended to transport the Leopard AS1 main battle tank. With the introduction of the M1A1 Abrams, which weights over 60 tons, a more capable tractor truck and semi-trailer were required. The new MAN military tractor truck is based on commercial design. A total of 16 tank transporters were ordered by the Australian MoD. Deliveries commenced in 2006.

   The primary function of Australian TGAs is to transport the M1A1 Abrams main battle tanks. The associated semi trailer was designed and built by Drake Trailers.

   Cab of the TGA provides seating foe driver and one passenger and is fitted with a sleeper bunk.

   The Australian MAN TGA tank transporter is powered by a turbocharged diesel engine, developing 530 hp. The prime mover and trailer has a maximum road speed of 90 km/h, when fully loaded.
