WWII came along, there was a big push to make some of the heaviest
trucks ever to come down the line. Suddenly Dodge, Ford and GM,
along with Diamond Reo and others, were cranking out 6x6 trucks
and "Deuces and a half" to move the supplies around
that the military needed to win the war.
trucks were simple to build and simple to operate. With no comforts
or added frills. They were built to be tough and take abuse.
this century, the militaries all over the world started to develope
specific trucks and vehicles with a single purpose. Cargo transportation,
mine removal, armored personel carriers, weapons platforms, communications,
now there was a whole stable of heavy truck designs for any task.
trucks by oshkosh were large trucks built to adapt to all terrains,
but are still able to be converted and used as a multipurpse truck.
and trucks like the M1070, M1078, M1082, and M1083 became variations
on the same or similiar trucks and chassis. And used world wide,
from northern lands to desert conditions.
and truck design marches on, and we can expect more trucks and
truck model kits in the future. From companies such as Revell
Germany, Italeri, Hobby Boss, Italeri, Academy, Trumpeter, Tamiya,
and many more.
kits have come a long way in recent years. Most have an interior,
detailed chassis, even an engine and drivetrain. They rival their
larger 1/25 scale cousins in detail and quality easily.
to mention that there are tons of gear to go with these kits.
Cargo accessories, trailers, weapons, photoetch, figures, and
much more. Plenty of model kits to make a diorama with your truck
and really show it off.
war time trucks were similar, if not the same, as U.S. and Allied
vehicles. But there were some exception cases were the British
had their own versions. One being the Land Rovers, and the Rolls
Royce armored "cars".
still make military vehicles today, sometimes in conjunction with
other partners, such as European countries, Canada, or Australia.
trucks such as the Dingos, M-series, APCs, and other designs continue
to serve and protect her Majesty's nation of Great Britain.
