Since we seem to be heavy on airplane content today here on Oppositelock, I thought I’d bring the automotive and aeronautic worlds together (plus ships!) with a short post about Navy Jeeps.

I really have nothing to add that doesn’t cover here, so go read that.

TL;DR: CJs were used to help tow jets around, including on carriers, and since they were there already they started being used as Auxiliary Power Units (APUs) (effectively, starter motors).
