From Steve: 

      Here is my 1944 Chevrolet M6 Bomb Truck towing a Saginaw M5 Bomb Trailer with BDU-12 10kt nuclear training bomb. I paid an old farmers widow $100 for this truck!

      The Bomb Truck is one of about 7,000 made during WW2. It has the Chevy crashbox 4 speed transmission and a 2 speed transfer case. It was designed to pull M5 Bomb Trailers. It would sometimes tow up to five of them in a train up to bombers on airfields in WW2.

      The Bomb Trailer is carrying a BDU-12 practice 10 kilo-ton nuclear practice bomb.
