M-925 Truck, Cargo 5 Ton 6x6

The M-925 Truck, Cargo, 5-ton, 6x6 is part of the M-939 Series of 5 ton 6x6 trucks. Details of the history, model numbers, and configurations of the M939-series of trucks are on the linked page.

The M925 is a dropside cargo truck of standard wheelbase. The M923 is the same vehicle without a winch. USMC M925 (and M923) cargo trucks had an updated cargo body with five drop sections (one rear, two on each side), compatible with ISO containers.
