Early Dodge Military Trucks
Prior to World War II, the vehicles procured by the War Department for military use were based on commercial designs. Military modifications were few, such as de-plating chrome parts and painting the entire vehicle in olive drab. Custom designed military vehicles, the normal practice in WW II and later, were few.
Dodge went on to be the major supplier of light tactical trucks in World War II, with the Dodge half-ton 4x4 VC-1 to VC-6 (G505), the half-ton 4x4 WC-1 to WC-50 (G505), the 3/4 ton 4x4 WC-51 to WC-61 and WC-64 (G502), and the related WC-62 and WC-63 1 1/2 ton, 6x6 (G507) trucks.
