Gąsienicowy pojazd amfibijny amtrac z rodziny amerykanskch pływających transporterów gąsienicowych, używanych w czasie II wojny światowej do celów desantowych. Amtrac powstał na bazie elementów podwozia czolgu M3 i z początku nie miał przeznaczenia bojowego. Pierwsze "amtraki" zaprojektowano do celów cywilnych na bagnistych terenach na Florydzie. Jednak w początkach wojny, gdy stało się oczywiste, że wojska amerykańskie będą musiały podejmować operacje desantowe na wyspach Pacyfiku, zaistniała konieczność zaadaptowania cywilnego projektu do celów wojskowych. W ten sposób doszło do skonstruowania pojazdów LVT-1, -2, -3 i -4 (Landing Vehicle, Tracked) z silnikiem benzynowym Continental W970 o mocy 250 KM pozwalającym na osiąganie prędkości na lądzie 32 km/h i w wodzie 12 km/h. LVT ważyły około 11 (z ładunkiem do 13) ton. Zasięg 160 km. Uzbrojenie w wersji LVT-4 to karabiny maszynowe kalibru 12,7 mm i 7,62 mm. W późniejszych wersjach pojawiały się armaty 37 mm, a nawet 75 mm. Do zakończenia działań wojennych na Pacyfiku wyprodukowano ponad 14 tysięcy amtraków.
The Amtrac tracked amphibious vehicle from the family of American floating tracked transporters used during World War II for amphibious operations. The Amtrac was developed from the chassis of the M3 tank and was initially not intended for combat use. The first "amtraks" were designed for civilian use in a swampy area in Florida. However, at the beginning of the war, when it became obvious that US troops would have to undertake amphibious operations in the Pacific islands, it became necessary to adapt the civilian design to military use. In this way, the LVT-1, -2, -3 and -4 (Landing Vehicle, Tracked) vehicles were developed with a Continental W970 gasoline engine with a capacity of 250 HP, capable of reaching speeds on land of 32 km / h and in water at 12 km / h. The LVT weighed about 11 (with a load of up to 13) tons. Range 160 km. The armament of the LVT-4 version is 12.7 mm and 7.62 mm machine guns. In later versions, 37 mm and even 75 mm cannons appeared. By the end of hostilities in the Pacific, more than 14,000 LVTs had been produced.

Jeep Willys (other names: Willys MB, Jeep) is an American off-road car from the Second World War and the post-war period. The first prototypes of the car were built in 1940, and serial production was carried out in 1940-1945. Nearly 650,000 copies of it were created in its course! The weight of the cart was about 1.1 tons, with a length of 3.36 meters and a width of 1.57 meters. The drive was provided by a single engine with a power of 60 HP. The maximum speed was up to 105 km / h.

The Jeep Willys was developed to order and demanded by the US Army, which in 1940, faced with the war, asked for a completely new 4x4 passenger car with a load capacity of up to 250 kilograms, which could be mass-produced. It is worth adding that initially the American Bantam Car with the Bantam BRC was the clear favorite in the tender. However, the US Department of Defense, striving to ensure the best possible car design and trying to ensure trouble-free series production, handed over the plans for the Bantam BRC to the Willys and Ford plants. Based on these plans, Willys developed a Jeep that had a much better power unit than the original Bantam BRC, as well as being mechanically more perfect. Ultimately, it was this car, the Willys Jeep, that won the tender for the US Army. The presented car was actually mass-produced and went to almost all Anglo-Saxon armies fighting in World War II, and thanks to the Lend-and-Lease program, also to the Soviet Union. He took part in hostilities in North Africa, Italy, Northwest Europe and the Pacific. It is often assumed that the Jeep Willys is one of the symbols of American triumph in World War II.
