GMC DUKW “Duck” World War II 1942 - 1945 Aluminum Parking Sign
The DUKW (colloquially known as Duck) was a six-wheel-drive amphibious modification of the 2 1⁄2-ton CCKW trucks used by the U.S. military during World War II. Designed by a partnership under military auspices of Sparkman & Stephens and General Motors (GMC), the DUKW was used for the transportation of goods and troops over land and water. Excelling at approaching and crossing beaches in amphibious warfare attacks, it was intended only to last long enough to meet the demands of combat. The DUKW was supplied to the U.S. Army, U.S. Marine Corps and Allied forces, and 2,000 were supplied to Britain, 535 were acquired by Australian forces, and 586 were supplied to the Soviet Union, which built its own version after the war. DUKWs were initially sent to Guadalcanal in the Pacific Theater, but were used by an invasion force for the first time in the European theater, during the Sicilian invasion, Operation Husky, in the Mediterranean. They were used on the D-Day beaches of Normandy and in the Battle of the Scheldt, Operation Veritable, and Operation Plunder. In the Pacific, USMC DUKW's were used to cross the coral reefs of islands such as Saipan and Guam and the tires were not affected by the coral. Surviving DUKWs have since found popularity as tourist craft in marine environments.
