Re: M35 A series Deuce-and-a-half

Here's a picture with some info:

The M-35, or Deuce and a Half as it was commonly known during the war, served in every theater of operation. It would help supply front lines where ever needed. Incidentally, the meaning of 2.5 is what the vehicle can carry (2.5 tons) as opposed to how much it weighs. The name itself, Deuce and a Half, is actually a term coined by soldiers to mean 2.5.
