FIELD ARTILLERY TRACTORS

Field Artillery Tractors, also known as gun tractors were part
of the CMP range from the outset. Both manufacturers
built them using a 3-ton version of the short wheelbase chassis fitted with winch,
2 speed transfer case, 20" wheels and a body to accommodate
both the gun crew and a supply of ready ammunition.
Typically they were used to tow the 25 pounder howitzer and
limber, but also towed a variety of artillery pieces including
the 17 pounder.
