Posted by Taipeh on 15 Sep 2019, 09:27

Hi Modellers ,

we go on with our range About the Vietnam War , this time 3 more variations of the Mule 274.

The M274 Mule was introduced in 1956 to supplement both the 1/4 ton Jeeps and 3/4 ton trucks in airborne and infantry battalions, and the US Marine Corps. There had been 11,240 Mules produced untill the end of the production.
The M274 Mules were often outfitted with a wide array of weaponry, especially in the Vietnam War. They could be modified to carry virtually any type of conventional weapon that could be mounted on a truck. Most commonly, the M274 was outfitted with:
M60 7.62mm NATO light machine guns
M2HB .50 Caliber machine guns
M 40 106 mm recoilless rifles
TOW anti-tank missile Systems

Now we add a mule 274 in the role as Transport for wounded soldier:

and the last is the mule 274 with 105mm recoiless gun which had been used at the battle of Hué and Siege of Khe San intensive
