This model kit requires assembly. Cement, paint and other construction materials not included unless specifically stated in the description.

Under the Military Utility Tactical Truck Project (MUTT), M151 series of U.S. Military vehicle was designed to replace the WWII MB and GPW, as well as the M38 and M38A1s. A development contract was awarded to Ford Motor Company in 1951 and after various designs were evaluated, army\'s Ordinance Truck Automotive Command(OTAC) approved the all-steel, integral chassis/body unit, with all-wheel independent suspension, 24-volt waterproofed electrical system, two/four wheel drive, and a four-speed, single transfer transmission. Ford manufactured the first production unit in 1960, with later contract being placed with the AM General Corporation. The M151 became known as a most reliable vehicle suitable for multiple roles and applications.

The original design of the M151 had some problems, such as the strength of the rear suspension system, and the high risk of vehicle rollover, To accommodate the need to carry additional weapons and loads, heavier-duty rear suspension was incorporated to the M151, which resulted in the M151A1. The M151A1 was modified as a recoilless rifle launcher, installing the M79 rifle mount and provisions for mounting of 6 rounds of ammunition. This was designated M151A1C and it was produced between 1964 by Rock Island Arsenal.

The rollover issue was addressed in further redesign of the suspension systems, which became the M151A2.
