Japan Ground Self Defense Force Type 73 Truck
Stock #: AOSH002346
The Isuzu Type 73 heavy truck has been a part of the Japanese Ground Self Defense Force for decades, with the first version coming off the assembly lines in 1973. A six-wheeled 3.5-ton truck, the Type 73 has three main types. The original Early Type was operated from 1973 to 1987, when the Improved Type arrived. The Improved Type featured a larger cabin size, increased engine power, ABS, and a 5-speed manual transmission.
In 1999, the New Type arrived, and it featured a new 6-speed transmission and a new cab design. Powered by an eight-cylinder diesel engine, the Type 73 truck can carry up to 22 soldiers in the bed, and its design led to other developments such as a dump truck, a short-range SAM truck, a decontamination truck, a biological reconnaissance truck, fuel and water tank trucks, and more. Its versatility and civilian cross-over potential ensures that the Type 73 heavy truck will remain in service with the JGSDF for many years to come.
