The M3A1 was the improved version of the M3 semi-track, the basis of Allied armored infantry during World War II and the early part of the Cold War. Inspired by the traction system of the French Citroën-Kégresse semi-track, the White Motor Company set out to develop a lightly armored vehicle with high mobility, capable of carrying an infantry squad of 10 soldiers. As a major improvement, it incorporated an armored pulpit for the squad leader with a ring for the Browning .50 caliber heavy machine gun that allowed 360-degree firing. Around 43,000 units were produced including numerous variants. The Ford GPA “Seep” was an amphibious jeep manufactured between 1942 and 1943, considered an unsuccessful design due to its heavy weight, slow speed and limited navigation capability. Of the nearly 12,800 units manufactured, half of these were delivered to the Red Army (Lend-Lease), who used them for river crossings on the Eastern Front. The Harley Davison WLA 750 was the motorcycle used by the American Army during WWII, mainly by the military police and dispatch riders.
