Following the UK MoD decision to take `Jackal` and `Coyote` into its Core Fleet, Supacat is developing additional variants and conversions of its HMT family to meet wider and emerging requirements that the vehicles can fulfil . The aim of the new variants is to help the customer see how they can optimise their existing fleet and enhance capability, interoperability, commonality, efficiency and value for money.

The new variants include HMT in the Recovery, Logistic Support and Gun Towing roles as well as a unique 4×4 to 6×6 convertible feature for `Jackal`. At DVD Supacat is unveiling the Logistic Support and Recovery variants, the former will be exhibited on the Supacat stand and the latter as a static display on the off-road area.

Supacat is also highlighting how the 4×4 `Jackal` can be re-rolled into a 6×6 `Coyote` using the unique convertible concept of its HMT Extenda special operations variant to increase payload, capacity and range. By inserting or removing a self-contained third axle HMT Extenda is convertible to a 4×4 or 6×6 configuration within a day to meet different operational requirements.
