Description

The M54A2 , also known as the M39 series truck, is a heavy tactical 5-ton 6×6 truck built for the United States Armed Forces. Designed to transport heavy loads over all terrain, even in adverse weather conditions, the M54A2 saw combat deployment with the  Marines, U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force, and the Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN) forces during the Vietnam War.
