The Origin in the Military
The TowFLEXX TF5 MilSpec has its origins in the military. Initially, it all started with an inquiry from the Swiss Air Force (Armasuisse) asking whether we had a solution for fighter jets, specifically for the F18. Even though such a solution did not exist at that time, the development of a new, larger tug started immediately. The result of years of development is the TowFLEXX TF5, an aircraft tug suitable not only for commercial aircraft up to 60 tons, but also for fighter jets such as F15, F16, F18, F22, F35, A10 and many more. On that basis, further refinement of a special military configuration (MilSpec) followed in 2020 in collaboration with the U.S. Air Force and other militaries.
