Sirs, Ma'ams As a part of my Senior CLM workbook I've been tasked to research the implementation of the 15 tonne MAN SV which replaced the 14 tonne TM. However after trawling many different web sites & talking to the relevant people in my regiment I've managed to gain very little information to put some meat on the bones of this subject so I'm hoping that I can pick the brains from yourselves the wider audience. The main topic that I require information is the actual implementation of the vehicle. When it came into service? I'm lead to believe it came into service around mid to late 2008 but I've not got any solid evidence to support these dates. How the fleet was rolled out? Was it over a period of time, if so how long did the process last or were you an operational unit and took delivery of a new fleet immediately? Whilst the transition of the vehicles occurred what effect did it have on the unit effectiveness to operate? Finally what the drivers actally think about the new vehicle compared to the 14tonne TM? Thank you for taking the time to read this and any other information would be most welcome.
