Default PLS, DROPS, HLVW + KENWORTH NATO standards

Dear All,

Can anyone comment on the interoperability of the Canadian PLS flatracks between NATO partners?

Are all flatracks the same basic dimensions, ie any nations trucks can collect them?

Is the Current HLVW system the same as what was on the Kenworths?

Lost to get into here, a friend is looking for insight before he buys a PLS set up as the sourcing of flatracks is critical. Flatracks are available in some parts of the world but not the set up equipment.

Thanks in advance
Robin Craig

Default standardization

There is probably a STANAG on PLS'. Some are classified. Most are pretty routine. All have very boring titles.

Suggest you let someone else wrack their brain, and donate $5 to the Canadian government Receiver General with an Access to Information request. Ask about standards for PLS trucks and racks, and NATO compatibility. You can bet some swivel chair commando will sit bolt upright at the thought someone is interested in something so invisible.
