New Army trucks head to Helmand

40 of the UK's latest support vehicles have embarked on a transport ship for deployment to Afghanistan where they will support 3 Commando Brigade. The new trucks have better protection, are more reliable and have better air conditioning (important for operation in Afghanistan's deserts). The vehicles are part of a £1.3 billion procurement in 7000 vehicles and 200 of these vehicles will be deployed to Afghanistan.
