   The Sisu E-Tech 480 tank transporter was first revealed in 2000. The French Army ordered a total of 110 of these tractor trucks. First vehicles were delivered in 2003. This new tank transporter is intended to supplement the current fleet of Renault TRM 700-100 in peacetime tank transport roles. The French Ministry of Defense wanted a militarized version of commercial tractor truck in order to simplify support. The Sisu E-Tech 480 are also used to tow the Leclerc main battle tanks and other heavy armored vehicles.

   This Sisu 6x4 tractor truck is based on the same technology as civilian versions. It is designed for transportation weights up to 50 000 kg. It is used in conjunction with existing semi-trailers of the Renault TRM 700-100.

   The Sisu E-Tech 480 is fitted with Renault cab. It is fitted with two sleeper bunks and provides accommodation only for driver and co-driver. However there is no seating for the tank crew.

   The Sisu E-Tech 480 uses a number of proven automotive components. Vehicle is powered by a Mack EUP 12 diesel engine, developing 480 hp.
