The M-35 traces its history to the GMC trucks of the Second World War, and this 2 ½ ton truck class has been used by many armies, literally all over the world since. This 1970 example is made by AM General, and has a very interesting multifuel engine that is capable of running on almost any type of petroleum, from home heating oil to gasoline and jet fuel!
This particular truck is a former US Army example, and sports a ring above the cab to mount either a .30 cal light machine gun, or a heavy .50 cal machine gun for convoy protection and anti-aircraft use.
Used for carrying up to 20 troops or cargo, it can also be loaded with specially made radio or medical containers in the rear cargo area for particular tasks.
One of the most unusual modifications to these trucks was during the Vietnam War, where many were converted to “Gun Trucks,” heavily armed with many machine guns, even in some cases high-speed Gatling guns, to ward off jungle ambushes. Most had homemade armor plates added to them to protect the drivers and gun crews.
