Military Ambulances

Military ambulances are trucks (or hearses) modified for the specialized function of transporting casualties to medical aid stations or long distance transportation. Tactical ambulances have all wheel drive with heavy drive train and suspension necessary to reach front line units where there may be no roads. Military ambulances may also be equipped with special lighting, litter racks, and other specialized equipment. They typically are specially marked with large red cross symbols and Medical Department insignia.
