The M16 Multiple Gun Motor Carriage, also known as the M16 Half-track, was an American self-propelled anti-aircraft weapon built during World War II. It was equipped with four 0.5 inch (12.7 mm) M2 Browning machine guns in a M45 Quadmount. 2700 were produced by White Motor Company from May 1943 to March 1944, with 568 M13 MGMCs and 109 T10 Half-tracks being converted into M16s as well. Based on an M3 Half-track chassis, it replaced the M13 MGMC half-track after early 1944. As aircraft became more advanced, the usefulness of the M16 was reduced. In the Korean War, it was relegated primarily to the ground-support role, being put out of service in the U.S. Army in 1951. Nicknamed the "Meat Chopper", the M16 was famous for its effectiveness against low-flying aircraft and infantry, making it extremely popular with soldiers.

Diamond T M16 MGMC

Designed as a large, high-mobility infantry vehicle, the M3 half-track was standardized in 1940 and was built by the Diamond T Motor Company for use during WWII and the Cold War. In order to improve its reliability and to speed up production, the M3 was produced with as many commercial components as possible. It had a longer body than its counterpart, the M2, and could carry a 13-man rifle squad. It had a fully armored body and a bullet-proof windscreen, and the radiator was protected by an adjustable armored shutter. Later variants included machine gun mounts and rear-mounted racks for crew stowage.
