4.5 Other wheeled toolcarrier initiatives in Asia
The work on wheeled toolcarriers in India has been the most significant in Asia in terms of the numbers of original designs produced, and the extent of promotion. In many other countries in Asia there have been small-scale evaluation trials, and some original designs have been produced in Pakistan and Thailand, although these have not passed the prototype stage. NIAE ADT toolcarriers have been tested in Pakistan, Yemen and Thailand, and Tropicultors have been used in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Yemen. In early 1987 small numbers of GOM Toolcarriers (Nikart type) were ordered for evaluation in Burma and the Philippines.
