Description Specification Reviews (0)

The Canadian Department of National Defence in the aftermath of Hitler’s rise invited both Ford and R.S McLaughlin Motors (which later became General Motors Canada) to design a truck that would surpass the performance of the British Scammell Pioneer’s 6x4 truck. Certain specifications were laid down eventually giving rise to what was known as Canadian Military Pattern (CMP).

 

They were produced in large numbers to supply the British troops and even the Soviet forces (when the Nazis) invaded Russia. These trucks saw battle right from Italy to Myanmar (then Burma). These trucks were assembled in many countries such as Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and the UK.

 

About 9500 of these were even assembled here in India by the British and used extensively against the Japanese in the jungles of Burma. One can see the image of the Indian built C8’s leaving towards the border during the Chinese aggression of 1962.
