English term or phrase:quarter-ton reconnaissance vehicle
veicoli usati nella seconda Guerra Mondiale dagli americani
The jeep, first used by the U.S. military in WWII, was an all-purpose vehicle for reconnaissance and cross-country travel. Development began in the 1920s and in 1940, the Army Quarter Master General invited bids on a 1/4-ton four-wheel drive truck. After testing models submitted by the American Bantam Co., Willys-Overland Motors, and the Ford Motor Co., the Army chose the Willys design. More than 639,000 jeeps were built by Willys and Ford during WWII.
