About the M29 Weasel - Cargo Carrier:
Introduced in 1942 as an all-terrain vehicle capable of handling everything from loose sand to deep snow, the M29 Weasel saw action throughout World War II and into the Korean and Vietnam wars. The vehicle’s initial development was a result of Operation Plough, which was intended to be an assault behind enemy lines into Norway to disrupt the German atomic weapons program. The operation would’ve required small teams to be quickly transported across deep snow, and thus led to the creation of the M29. Despite the operation never coming to fruition, the M29 was still used effectively in every theater of World War II.
