Halftrack SPAAG

Halftrack anti aircraft gun. Aalsmeerderbrug, Holland 2008.


Editor: Picture of a nicely restored military vehicle. I assume this is a WW II US Army halftrack self-propelled anti aircraft gun... anyone able to identify it correctly?

Wasn't it the M16? The top half of the bodysides dropped down to allow full traverse of the Gun.

Yes it is the M16. This had a quad 0.502 MG mount - later sometimes seen on M35 "gun-trucks" in Vietnam.

The M16's were used to grim effect in Korea a few years earlier. In that conflict they earned the grusome nickname of 'Meat Chopper'.
Presumably the M35 Trucks replaced these?

nothing like a quick-firing LAA setup to shift infantry out of their trenches!

In Korea, these were used against 'Human Wave' attacks by the Chinese. These M16's were horribly effective!!
