The Husky (formally Carrier, Cargo, Amphibious, M116) is a 1 1/2 ton capacity, low ground pressure cargo and personnel carrier capable of operating over all kinds of terrain and under all seasonal conditions in tropical, temperate and arctic zones.
The Husky was designed to be fully amphibious without preparation of a fording kit. Propulsion and steering, both on land and water, are accomplished by movements of the tracks.
It is sometimes referred to as a marginal terrain vehicle and has served in that role from the hot swamps and paddies of Vietnam to the snowy fields of Alaska.
The Husky body is made of aluminum. The body is open at top and normally is used with top bows and canvas for cover, but it can be covered with a fiberglass enclosure for colder weather. There is a front mounted winch.
Here is your chance to own one of the rarest tracked vehicles in civilian hands.
