The Heavy Equipment Transport System (HETS) is a military logistics vehicle used to transport, deploy, and evacuate tanks, armored personnel carriers, self-propelled artillery, and other heavy vehicles. Using HETS saves wear and tear on the tank, and is more cost efficient, as tanks are expensive to run and maintain. Since the tanks do not need to self-deploy to the battlefield, en route breakdowns are prevented, and more fighting vehicles will be available for combat.
