  Don Eikenberry moving ammo.

The wrecker, the only truck not traded for diesel unit as Don remembers.

The motor out of VTR. V12 Allison fuel injected gas as I remember.

VTR (vehicle, tracked, recovery). It was a very impressive unit.  Big, heavy, and lots of power.  Next the motor out of VTR. V12 Allison fuel injected gas as I remember.  Dogs name was Projo. 

5 ton wrecker changing 175 tube.  Every 300 rounds zone 3 as I remember.  One of the gunners can correct me on that.  We used 2 wreckers, Aussies would bring theirs to help.

Don Whittaker moving powder with wrecker.
