The M561 Cargo Truck - The Gama Goat 700015

The military's need for a highly mobile cargo truck capable of traveling over rough terrain and across rivers and streams led to the development of the M561 Gama Goat. The operating economy, mobility, and reduced maintenance of the M561 shows a marked improvement over other lightweight tactical vehicles. Moreover, the M561 can be used as a command and communications vehicle, troop and cargo carrier, ambulance, and prime mover of towed trucks. The versatility of the M561 will make it a valuable addition to the military's transportation fleet.
