Soldiers from throughout the 25th Combat Aviaition Brigade conducted convoy operations, 26 and 28 January 2009.  Eighty vehicles and equipment from Wheeler Army Airfield were transported to the Pohakuloa Training Area on the big island of Hawaii for pre-deployment training.
The M-26 Heavy Transporter Truck & M-15 Trailer were standardized together in June 1943 as a retriever for the M-4 Sherman medium tank. The tractor-trailer combination was originally designated as the M-25 but the nomenclature was changed in late 1944 to separately designate the tractor as the M-26 and the trailer as the M-15.  The combination of the M-26 Heavy Transporter Truck & M-15 Trailer was called the Dragon Wagon by the troops, a designation that was also used for other vehicles at other times.  Tank appears to be German Panther V.
