Long Description:
This Vehicle is on display on the east side of the 45th Infantry Division Museum at 2145 N.E. 36th Street, Oklahoma City.

The M5 is a fully-track vehicle designed to tow the 105 mm Howitzer M2, and the 155 mm Long Tom field artillery, and carry the gun crew and ammunition. A winch and roller system allows the M5 to pull vehicles to the front or rear. Armament is a single anti-aircraft M2 Browning machine gun.

The M5 was standardized in October 1942 from the T21, a vehicle based on the tracks and suspension of the Stuart tank. International Harvester started production in 1942. The vehicle was used through the 1960's. [ Source: Wikipedia]
