Silver Eagle Announces National Stock Number (NSN)for Low Bed Fifth Wheel Tactical Trailer (FTT-LB)
Portland, Oregon (07/26/11) - Silver Eagle Manufacturing, the global leader in light tactical trailers, has been issued National Stock Number (NSN) 2330-01-598-1686 for its Low Bed Fifth-Wheel Tactical Trailer (FTT-LB), which effectively allows the High-Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV) to increase its towing capacity to 7,000 pounds.
The Silver Eagle FTT-LB is an integrated trailering system that allows military HMMWVs to achieve a 67% greater towing capacity than with standard Light Tactical Trailers. Using the FTT-LB, even up-armored HMMWVs can transport shelters, larger generators and mission-critical cargo without weight waivers or repackaging.
“The Silver Eagle FTT-LB trailer solves an important problem for the military and defense contractors,” said Kevin Mulrenin, Vice President of Government Sales for Silver Eagle Manufacturing. “The FTT-LB makes the HMMWV a more effective and efficient prime mover because it allows the transport of heavier systems and equipment even as the HMMWV becomes heavier.”
The FTT-LB achieves proven stability with its patent-pending STABLE™ coupling system, which redistributes the tongue weight of the trailer over the rear axle of the HMMWV. Rigorous testing and validation at both the Nevada Automotive Test Center (NATC) and U.S. Army Developmental Test Command at Aberdeen Proving Grounds (APG) proved the FTT-LB has unprecedented trailering mobility and stability characteristics, even over severe terrain.
About National Stock Number (NSN)
A National Stock Number (NSN), as it is known in the US, or a NATO Stock Number, is a 13-digit numeric code identifying all the “standardized material items of supply” as they have been recognized by all NATO countries including the U.S. Department of Defense. An item having an NSN is said to be “stock-listed,” which expedites the purchase process.
