US Army, Vietnam, 1968

M35 2.5 Ton Truck   3.75"   1.25"

During the Vietnam War the M35 Deuce and a Half became more sophisticated by using them as the prime mover for M55 Quad .50 cal Gun Trailers. Some M35s became more than cargo trucks and prime movers, they became gun trucks equipped with M55s mounted on the truck bed, or possibly 2 M60 belt-fed machine guns, M79 grenade launchers, M16 assault rifles, shot guns, an M134 Minigun and probably the most feared, the Browning M2 .50 caliber belt-fed machine gun. One M35 was usually among 15 to 20 vehicles in a line.

M35 2.5 Ton Truck

Designed for the US Army in 1949 by the REO Motor Car Company, the M35 "Deuce and a Half" first entered service in the early 1950s. This 2 ton vehicle is rated to carry 5,000 lbs cross-country and up to 10,000 lbs on paved roads, but has been known to carry much more, in some cases up to twice what it is rated for. No longer used just by the Army, today M35s serve all branches of the US military as well as in many other nations. Variants include cargo trucks, tank trucks, wrecker and tractor variants as well as van, construction and gun variants.
