As part of an approximately $28.5 million contract with the U.S. Army TACOM Life Cycle Management Command, Mack Trucks Inc. recently delivered 36 Mack Vision Elite model tractors with 70-inch high-rise sleepers. The trucks were built at the New River Valley Plant in Dublin, Va.

Known domestically as the Mack Pinnacle Axle Back model, the Vision Elite tractor is designed specifically for export markets. It’s powered by an export version of the Mack MP8 13-liter engine.

The three-year contract calls for Mack, based in Lehigh Valley, Pa., to deliver the Army 152 Vision Elite models, with lowboy trailers, as well as spare parts. A total of 80 units are slated for delivery this year.
