1,200.00 ฿

A Unique Life-Saver
M561, fondly known as the "Gama Goat," was certainly a unique vehicle. Formally commissioned in 1966, this amphibious off-roader consisted of 4-wheel tractor and 2-wheel carrier modules, and provided 6-wheel drive thanks to an ingenious articulation joint connecting the two. Among the range of M561 variants, the M792 ambulance was the only vehicle to receive its own unique designation number. Its carrier unit was fitted with a canvas roof with red cross symbols, and within were folding seat extensions on the existing benches to allow transportation of the wounded. A heater was also installed. The M792 could be seen in action alongside its close cousin the M561 during the Invasion of Grenada in 1983.
