GMC CCKW-353 Lkw, 2.5-ton, 6x6, Tankaufsatz mit Seilwinde

Fuel tanker conversions of the standard military 2.5-ton cargo truck played an important part in mobile warfare. Tanker trucks transported gasoline und diesel fuel from rear area depots, und rail heads to refueling points near the front. Acting as a mobile gas station, the tanker could refuel two vehicles simultaneously, und it did so in much less time than would be required to refuel from 20 liter fuel cannisters. Fuel tankers were often disguised as regular trucks, using canvas cargo covers, to avoid being singled out during an aerial attack.
