WHAT IS IT?

RC Car Action - - PROJECT -

The Ste­wart & Stevenson M1079 van is a light medium tac­ti­cal ve­hi­cle that the mil­i­tary uses as a mo­bile shop. The van fea­tures full-time all-wheel drive, black­out shields, dou­ble rear doors, and re­mov­able steps. De­spite its “light­weight”alu­minum body, the M1079 comes in at 17,981 pounds. It can carry 5,000 pounds and has a top speed of just 58mph.

Tekin’s Ty Campbell is the man be­hind this amaz­ing build, but he’ll be the first to tell you it wasn’t a solo job. “The project couldn’t have been done with­out the sup­port of Tekin lead de­signer Zak Kennedy,” says Ty. “Zak’s vision and skill were cru­cial in bring­ing this truck to life.”
