The M151A2 was a variant of the M151, a military utility truck which was used by the U.S. Army and Marine Corps from 1959 to the early 1990s. The vehicle was originally designed to replace the M38/M38A1 utility vehicles used by the U.S. during WWII. The M151A2 variant was first deployed in 1972 and featured modifications such as upgraded rear suspension, larger turn signals on the front, and an M2 heavy machine gun in place of the previous M60.
