Motorcycles and Jeeps
Inclusion of the motorcycle has given mobility and speed to the reconnaissance forces of the Army.
It gives a single man the speed of a car, but the ability to go across country and in narrow pathways.
Individual mobility is an important aspect to modern warfare.
The Jeep gives men the ability to move supplies and small artillery easily.
With the windshield folded down the Jeep is easy to conceal from the enemy.
It can carry heavy infantry weapons like this 100 pound flamethrower.
