M-19 Tank Transporter
The M-19 Tank Transporter (US supply catalog designation G-159) was a heavy tank transporter system used in World War II and into the 1950s. It consisted of a 12-ton 6x4 M-20/Diamond T Model 980 truck and companion 24-wheel M-9 trailer.
Over 5,000 were produced, and employed by Allied armies throughout all theaters of war. It was superseded in the U.S. military by the M-25 Tank Transporter during the war, but usefully redeployed in other tasks. It was superseded by the Thornycroft Antar in British service by the early 1950, though a few remained operational in units through 1971.
