Typical post WW II “Deuce and a half” or 2-1/2 ton truck used by armies around the world.  Introduced in 1952, this model stayed in service (with modifications) through the Gulf War.  This particular military vehicle was recently released to private collectors so we can probably locate any number of them.  Ours is old and tired but a great vehicle for background and limited movement on set.

Artillery Simulator

This is a light artillery piece built from a tank gun simulator which fires off propane and oxygen,  creating about 90% of the noise and flash of a 90 mm main battle tank gun (very, very loud).  It most closely resembles a WW II German recoiless rifle but also looks like numerous other howitzers and anti-tank guns. We also have the appropriate fire direction center and forward observation equipment  Pulls behind jeep or larger vehicles.  Can repaint as needed.
