    Product Description
    The M561 Gama Goat is a six-wheel-drive semi-amphibious vehicle. It was developed for use by the US Military for the war in Vietnam. It was famous for an articulated body, which allowed it to travel over exceptionally rough terrain and for a unique steering arrangement with the front and rear wheels turning in opposite directions.
    The vehicle's nickname came from two sources; "Gama" from the name of the inventor of its powered articulated joint, Roger Amount, and "Goat" for its mountain goat-like off-road ability. Its military designation was M561, 6x6 tactical 1-1/2-ton truck.
    About 15,274 Gama Goats have been built. The M561has been replaced by the CUCV and HMMWV.
