3. For the most part the equipment of the battalion held up very well, considering the operating conditions and the servioing facilities available. The six by six (6x6) dump trucks performed especially well. There were practically no mechanical failures among the twenty-seven dump trucks operated by this battalion. It is recommended that they all be equipped with half tracks. The three trucks that were so equipped proved themselves invaluable.
Anybody know if this was actually implemented? Or if there was another system developed that precluded the need for this?
