That is the latest version, the A4 (specifically an M978A4 fuel tanker).

As Vodnik says, no one does one. You would have to convert the old Italeri M978A2 if you want one.

Could be becoming a tough job. Rebuilt the cab, creating a new engine compartment with new spare tire holder and perhaps most difficult, modifying the suspension to air ride. I maybe try it when the M983 LET form Trumpeter will be released. To give an insight about the points mentioned above, check the M977 A4 walkaround on Primeportal.

Yup, didn't say it would be easy.
