The DUKW is an American amphibious transport.

DescriptionEdit

Colloquially known as the "Duck", the DUKW is a heavily modified GMC CCKW truck and was normally used to transport supplies and troops over land and water, but it was also used in amphibious attacks when necessary. The vehicle was delivered to all allied armies including the Soviets via Lend-Lease, the latter build them on their own unter license later. The vehicle proved to be extremly valuable in combat and many of them are still in use by private owners until today.

In Battlegroup42, the DUKW has space for one driver and five passenger, and has provision for first aid and ammunition for its passengers. One of the passenger also has access to an M2 Browning machine gun next to the driver for self defense. The vehicle is thinly armoured and is open topped, making it vulnerable to enemy fire. There is also a special fire support variant, the Assault DUKW. It loads a 155mm M1A2 howitzer, which can be fired from the cargo bay.
