BackTrail: a change in concept

  • A BackTrail attached to the combat forces gives them more breathing room and extended operation time, without hindering their maneuverability and performance
  • One BackTrail with fuel and one with ammunition can extend a company operation time by 50%
  • Enables adjustment and distribution of supplies among vehicles and neighboring units
  • Can be towed to battle by AFVs and towed back for re-supply by ‘softer’ vehicles and trucks
