The AFV Club 1/35 M54A2 5 Ton 6x6 Gun Truck plastic truck model accurately recreates the real life truck used by the US Army during the Vietnam War.

Truck, Cargo, 5 Ton, 6x6. US Army general purpose truck designed in the early 1950s by International Harvester and produced by IH, Diamond T, Kaiser (later Kaiser–Jeep) and Mack. The Vietnam gun trucks were field-modified weapons-platforms to protect the supplies, fuel and ammunition convoys from attack. Their armour plating was salvaged from destroyed trucks.

The AFV Club kit depicts 'Eve of Destruction' (after the protest song), the only surviving gun truck of the war in Vietnam. It was repatriated to the United States in 1971 and is preserved at the Army Transportation Museum, Fort Eustis, Virginia 23604.

New tooling parts including armoured cab, M60 machine gun mount & gun rack. Also includes .30 Cal & 0.50 Cal ammunition boxes, US GI Insulated Food Container ("Mermite can"). Truck features include poseable front wheel steering, injection moulded tyres, front winch & chain.
