This HST arrived in February 2011. It was apparently brought in from the United States during the 1990s with a Detroit diesel conversion and used during the filming of Band of Brothers. It has been modified quite a bit on the cab but this is planned to be put back to how it should be. (Source: Sharky/HMVF).
A large number of ex-MDAP M4 High Speed Tractors used by the Dutch Army ended up at Sam Winer Motors in the US (source: H. Spoelstra/HMVF). It is presumed that this HST served with the Dutch Army, then was sold from Sam Winer Motors to the UK, then took part in the filming of Band of Brothers. This was probably at Hatfield Aerodrome in Hertfordshire, the principal location, circa 1999-2001 (source: IMDB). It is currently in a poor condition; it shows signs of rust and has a hole in the rear right superstructure side. It is fitted with extended-end-connectors on its tracks.
