The Supacat All Terrain Mobility Platform (ATMP) in use by 16 Air Assault Brigade forces, including the Parachute Regiment.

The ATMP is a permanent 6-wheel drive, diesel-powered troop carrier. It can carry 2 crew and up to 8 troops. The ATMP is steered by a handlebar device. The ATMP offers excellent off-road capability. A hollow aluminium-clad frame allows the ATMP to float on water.

ATMPs can be configured for different roles:

  • basic troop transport
  • with roll bars and weapons mounts fitted the ATMP can act as a mobile fire support base
  • fork lift pallet trailer
  • aviation fuel tanker
  • casualty evacuation - with the addition of stretchers
