M151A1 Mutt 1/4 Ton 4x4

Utility Truck 

 


Statistics

Country of Origin/Used by: USA
First Produced/Service Dates: 1964
Manufactured by: Kaiser Jeep Corp. and American Motors Corp.
Crew: 1-3
Armament: Varied by Mission: (1) M60 7.62mm LMG, or (1) M2 .50 cal HMG.  Also, there was a M40A1 106mm Recoilless Rifle Armed Mutt = M151A1C.
Engine: 4 Cylinder Gasoline
Miscellaneous Info: The main physical difference that can be noted from the outside between this version and the M151A2, was the introduction of a small turn signal on the A2's top forward fender.  Still using the original independent coil suspension with minor improvements, the vehicle was felt to still have a tendency to roll over in a sharp turn.  While the A1 tried to remedy some of the shortcomings of the original vehicle, the suspension still remained a concern.
