The six-wheeled articulated and semi-amphibious utility tractor developed by the US military during the Vietnam War, although not finished in time to be deployed in that conflict. The name "Gama Goat" comes from its inventor's name, Richard Gamount, and its mountain goat-like ability to traverse treacherous terrain. Over 14,000 of the vehicle were built by 1973.
Tamiya's kit of the Gama Goat is a welcomed addition to their military lineup, and features a fully detailed suspension and a polycap in the tractor/trailer joint. One driver figure is included. Decals are provided for three versions, including one for a vehicle deployed in the 1983 invasion of Grenada.
