'Honest John' on display

1951 US 'Honest John' Nuclear Missile - on 1951 US International Harvester M386 TEL Vehicle @ Duxford IWM

The M289 and M386 tactical launchers and the below mentioned trucks are all member of the G-744 (or M39), 6 x 6, 5-tons truck series. The series was developed shortly after WW II to replace trucks in the 4-, 5-, 6-, and 7½-ton class. First production models were completed by Diamond T and International Harvester with later production being undertaken by Kaiser Jeep (now AM General) and Mack.
