Tank transport with 72 cutouts large enough for long vehicles such as the HEMTT, Trucks or smaller vehicles with trailers. Cutouts are .350" x 1.450" (8.9mm x 37mm).

I use the HEMTT transporter for my headquarters companies. Not ony does it hod the cargo and fuel HEMTTs, but the other support vehicles fit in the spaces as well. Each spot will hold two M577 / M113s, two HMMWVs, or a HMMWV and a 2.5 ton truck.
I love the tank transporters! I'm putting my entire collection in them!
I have now assembled 12 of these little ones, and 2 of the larger ones shown with aircraft. The assembly isn't too bad, I use some sticky white glue that seems to work well, but you really need to put it all together at once to ensure it'll fit right, and before it drys completely make sure it'll fit on another one. That being said I've tried single and double foam options. No matter how much foam you use, small bumps can easily knock off turrets, knock over vehicles, and so forth. I did put 4 of these in a car for a ride, and quite a few vehicles were bumped around. They were bumped on foam, so no damage, but they did need reset in their slots. These are great to store a massive amount of micro-armor on a shelf, easily accessible and easy to find. I never filed the ends on mine but they all go together ok. I've gotten all different sizes, and while I like the M1/M2 battalions, the others leave your miniatures kinda unorganized. I'd like to have an MRB version, maybe a LAV-R battalion, and some with varying sizes of cut-outs so you can put formations in them instead of just "this is all my BTRs or HEMMTs" or whatever. I'd like to see an option with just the bottom foam too, as with a lot of unpainted miniatures or aircraft it seems easier to drop the template and just lay them in there.
I can't imagine a better system for storing micro-armor, and these are great. Make sure you get the sizes you want as the foam may or may not fit what you want in them. There are some with like 110 Hummer sized units, and others with just 40 big tanks, so measure your miniatures so you know what to get. These do come as just the wood, so you have to glue them together. That is a bit of a pain for me, but acceptable. You still can't bump them much or stuff bounces around, even with double foam inserts. Gotta be careful with them still, but again, I can't imagine a more dense or easy to sort way of storing micro-armor.
