This from Military today:
The Oshkosh MK36 wrecker is a member of MTVR family of heavy high mobility military vehicles. Over 11 000 of these 6×6 tactical vehicles are in service with the US Navy and US Marine Corps. Initially a total of 308 MK36 wreckers were ordered. First production vehicles were fielded in 1998. These replaced the previous M816, M936 and M936A1 wreckers. Later additional MK36 wreckers were ordered. This machine has seen combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. The MK36 wrecker has been exported to Greece.
The main role of the MK36 wrecker is to support the fleet of Oshkosh MTVR trucks. It recovers damaged, immobilized, swamped, stuck, or overturned vehicles. It can recover all transport and armored vehicles in its weight class. Also the MK36 provide maintenance service and tow them to nearest shelters, assembly points or maintenance units.
The Oshkosh MTVR is a purpose-designed military truck. The MK36 wrecker is based on the baseline 6×6 cargo truck. This wrecker is fitted with a Manitowoc Boom Truck 1731 crane. It has a 10 000 kg capacity at 2.75 m and 1 800 kg capacity at a maximum reach of 9.5 m. The crane is used for recovery as well as other load lifting operations.
There were originally four MTVR variants, this increasing to seven, and then nine variants (plus a sub-variant) as deliveries and development continued. A dedicated trailer and prototype/developmental MTVRs have also been produced.
The first MTVRs were delivered in late 1999. The MTVR is the U.S. Marines’ equivalent of the U.S. Army’s Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV). The Marines do not use the FMTV (with the exception of the FMTV-based HIMARS); the Army does not use the MTVR. The MTVR was designed and is manufactured by Oshkosh Defense.
