Vehicle Description

FORD T16 UNIVERSAL CARRIER WW2 US MILITARY TRACKED ARMORED PERSONNEL VEHICLE

THE T16 WAS A MODIFICATION OF THE BRITISH UNIVERSAL CARRIER. THE VEHICLE WAS ORIGINALLY DESIGNATED AS THE CARGO CARRIER T16, BUT WAS RENAMED AS THE UNIVERSAL CARRIER T16 TO AVOID DISCREPANCY WITH BRITISH NOMENCLATURE. DIFFERENCES FROM THE BRITISH VEHICLE INCLUDED A SIMPLIFIED HULL DESIGN, A
DIFFERENT ENGINE AND STEERING SYSTEM, AND A REDESIGNED SUSPENSION AND TRACK. THE BRITISH VEHICLE
RAN ON A TWO-WHEELED BOGIE AND A SINGLE INDEPENDENTLY SPRUNG WHEEL ON EACH SIDE, WHILE THE T16
FEATURED TWO TWO-WHEELED BOGIES PER SIDE WITH THE SPRINGS FACING THE OPPOSITE DIRECTIONS. THE T16 USED A CONVENTIONAL CONTROLLED DIFFERENTIAL AND STEERING LEVERS TO STEER AS OPPOSED TO THE BRITISH VEHICLE'S STEERING WHEEL AND TRACK BENDING SYSTEM. A 1,200LB (540KG) PAYLOAD WAS SPECIFIED. NO CARRIERS WERE ISSUED TO THE US ARMY, BUT 19,193 WERE GIVEN TO ALLIES THROUGH LEND-LEASE.

READY FOR FUN OR SOME WORK. RUNS 30 MPH OVER THE MOUNTAIN TRAIL!
