About the original :

The ambulance version of the unique 6-wheel drive U.S. military vehicle the Gama Goat was originally commissioned in 1966 as an off-road, amphibious vehicle, a 6-wheel drive truck consisting of a 4-wheel tractor and a 2-wheel carrier module.

It employed an articulation joint between the two modules that allowed them to move independently of one another, allowing goat-like nimble traversing of rough terrain.

The M792 ambulance truck variant featured additional seats that could be folded out to make a bed for the wounded, a heater to warm up the rear carrier module, and a canvas roof to protect its passengers from the elements.

The M792 was deployed in the Invasion of Grenada which took place in 1983.
