Default A good vehicle for the Project-Japanese Load carrier

The Japanese GSDF has these load carriers which look to be the business

It's small, but could be useful. Found some specs on it at this Japanese website:

I made a PDF of the page translated to english via Google Translate and attached it here or those that don't want to go looking for themselves.

Trailer and everyone straps all there duffle bags and rucks to the outside.

This would have a Deuce or a XR311 accompanying it.

Don't overlook the fact these vehicles are designed for completely different mission profiles. The JGSDF Material Transport is basically a light construction vehicle and the M578 is a light armored recovery vehicle. One set of stats illustrates how different these are: the Material Transport weighs about 2 tonne, has a max carry capacity of 3 tonne and the crane can lift 2 tonne. The M578 weighs in at 27 tonnes and its crane can lift 15 tonne. So put three fully loaded Material Transports on a pallet and one M578 can lift it all.

Early Project vehicles might have included both the M715/ Jeep Gladiator pickup replaced by the CUCV. The CUCV shared componants with the Humvee. An idea I had was to have transport facilities hidden near truck stops. The "Flying M" Would have power plants and transmissions to convert the trucks at the stops as per the original 5 year plant to augment with surviving equipment.

Just the diesel motors, the head light controls, and the blackout drive lamp. It's a 24volt system, but I think the commonality of parts there crosses over to several chassis.

Had some down time and work and went looking. You will notice that the cockpit of the Flying M logo looks a bit like a "P".
