I'm not getting anywhere when I search so maybe some of you Army guys (any country) can tell me if the M1070 HET and M1000 was used in the (second Gulf War) Iraq War? I know, or read, that the D9 was.

Yes.

I went to an image search, typed in M1070 iraq  and came up with this as my top hit.

Yes, the "Super HET" was in use from about 1992-93 to present. They were present during operations in OIF.

Hard to believe this truck has been in use for nearly 30 years.

Ye, we had them when i was in Iraq, though the British use the M1070F and a different trailer unit.

I remember the first time i loaded a Warrior onto one of these. A big improvment over the Scammel.

I am a Norfolk man and i glory in being so
