The history of Bedford TM
The Bedford TM 6-6 heavy truck was developed from the Bedford TM 4-4 to meet the British Army requirement. The Bedford TM 4-4 and TM 6-6 trucks are basically similar, the TM 4-4 being a 4x4, 8 tone vehicle and the TM 6-6 being a 6x6, 14 tone design (maximum load 16 tons). They share many components in common, such as the utilitarian forward control cab and engine, while many design details, such as the cargo area loading heights, are identical on both vehicles.
The TM 4-4 was developed first in answer to a British Army requirement issued during the early 1970s - the first production examples were delivered in 1981. The TM 6-6 followed with first pre-production vehicle was completed the same year. Trials of this military truck began in 1984. Full scale production of the Bedford TM 6-6 commenced in 1986. Production has now ceased with over 1 045 vehicles being built. These trucks are still operational with the British Army, however they are being replaced by more modern MAN trucks. Small numbers of this military truck were exported to the Middle East.
The basic form the Bedford TM 6-6 is a flat bed cargo truck capable of carrying 10 standard NATO ammunition or other stores-carrying pallets. For this role it can be fitted with ATLAS self-loading hydraulic crane located behind the cab. It lifts a maximum weight of 3.65 t. There was also a cargo version, fitted with a centrally mounted winch. It is used to recover loads up to 10 t. The Bedford TM 6-6 can carry standard shelters or workshop bodies. Drop sides and a tailgate can be added to convert the vehicle into general load carriers. Seating for personnel may also be fitted, however these heavy trucks are usually found moving NATO standard pallets, containers or fuel.
A forward control cab provides seating for driver and one passenger. There is a roof hatch, which can be used to mount light machine gun or for observation. The roof is reinforced to withstand the weight of two men. The cab is tilted forward for engine access and maintenance.
This military truck is powered by a Bedford 8.2/205 TD 8.2-liter turbocharged diesel engine, developing 206 hp. Engine is coupled with a 6-speed manual gearbox. Exported TM 6-6s were fitted with Cummins engines. Vehicle has a permanent six-wheel drive. A centrally-mounted self-recovery winch was fitted on some vehicles.
Production of all Bedford trucks ceased in 1999. The Bedford TM 6-6 was replaced in the British Army service by the new MAN tactical trucks.
