The M6 High-Speed Tractor was a hefty vehicle used by the US Army in World War II to tow heavy artillery around the battlefield. Built by Allis-Chalmers, it wasn’t exactly a speed demon by modern standards, but its “high speed” designation was meant in comparison to the horse-drawn artillery of the past, not trucks or tanks. Here are some of the key features of the M6 High-Speed Tractor: Massive towing capacity: Weighed in at 38 tons and was designed to tow some of the biggest guns in the US arsenal, like the 8-inch Gun M1 and the 240 mm Howitzer M1. Dual engine power: Packed a punch with two Waukesha 145GZ 6-cylinder gasoline engines, each cranking out 190 horsepower for a total of 380 horsepower. Decent speed: For its time and purpose, the M6 was fairly quick. It could reach up to 21 miles per hour (34 kilometers per hour). Troop transport: In addition to hauling artillery, the M6 could also seat up to 10 passengers in its cabin. Winter warfare ready: The crew compartment could be covered with a sheet to keep the troops warm in harsh winter conditions. Overall, the M6 High-Speed Tractor was a powerful and versatile vehicle that helped the US Army move its big guns around the battlefield during World War II.
