From the 1940s to the present, the versatile M35 2.5 ton cargo truck has been a vital logistical tool for US forces around the world. The "Deuce and a Half" can carry 5,000 pounds cross-country or 10,000 pounds over roads, and was considered a medium-duty vehicle by the military.
Academy's sharp little M35 is molded in tan plastic and features a magnificently detailed chassis and suspension. No engine detail is included, but the cab is nicely furnished for the scale, and the exterior features very fine detailing. All 10 tires (whoops, make that 11 tires...I forgot the spare!) are injection-molded, and decals are included for one vehicle that served in Vietnam circa 1968 and one that served in Baghdad circa 2003.
