ordnance May Jun 1921 motorized transport croppedToday we dive back into the May-June 1921 issue of Ordnance Journal to showcase an article on “Motorized Transport.”  Written by Colonel Lucien Moody, this piece looks at one of the earliest attempts by the US Army to develop a tracked troop and supply transport vehicle.  Oddly, the article contains several pictures of a small, square shaped tracked vehicle being put through a series of tests but does not provide a description of this particular vehicle in the body of the text.
