I have seen a set by ET model that has a Sincgars in it for the M1070, it includes the computer screen, is this correct for a M1070 HET? I thought it would only have the radio's.
Cheers,

Shane,
I know as early as 2005, the US Army was beginning to install the MTS, a system very similar to the Blue Force Tracker system in logistical vehicles. Placing the system in a M1070 makes sense as the HETS are a highly valuable transport system for moving heavy items between the Forward Operating Bases/Contingency Operating Bases.

Thanks John,
That explains a lot for me, so now I know I can use the whole set up.
Yup, it makes sense to have a MTS in the HET, it is an expensive asset.
