Mack 7.5-ton Truck 6x6 (Model NO)
This truck was first used in Italy, both as a cargo truck and as a prime mover for the 155mm "Long Tom" artillery piece (p. W:MP27). It is of conventional layout, with a 2-person cab and a canvas covered cargo area. Production totaled 2,050 vehicles.
The Model NO burns 5.4 gallons of gasoline per hour at routine usage. A full tank of petrol costs $19.80. It can ford depths of up to 2.5' and has a range of 212 miles.

Subassemblies: Very Large Wheeled chassis with Heavy option +5; six Off-Road Wheels +4.
Powertrain: 119-kW Standard gasoline engine with 119-kW All-Wheeled drivetrain; 132-gallon standard fuel tank (Fire 12); 4,000-kW battery.
Occ.: 1 CS, 1 PS
Cargo: 150 Body

All: 3/5

500-lb. winch [Body:F].

Size: 25'x9'x10' Payload: 8.09 tons Lwt.: 21.8 tons
Volume: 240 Maint.: 135 hours Cost: $2,194
HT: 12. HPs: 2,700 Body, 300 each Wheel.
gSpeed: 31 gAccel: 2 gDecel: 10 gMR: 0.5 gSR: 4
Ground Pressure: High. 1/4 Off-Road Speed.

Design Notes:
Design loaded weight was 43,166 lbs.; this was increased 1% to the historical. (Another source lists total weight as 20.4 tons and empty weight as 13 tons.) My original calculations designed the truck with a Heavy Large Wheeled chassis with the weight increased 50% (which worked out nicely), but as this is nearly identical to the Very Large Wheeled chassis except for VSPs, I swapped up for the description. The design purchases a 135-gallon fuel tank; the historical capacity is shown. Design gSpeed was 37 mph; the historical gSpeed is shown (although another source lists top speed as 53 mph).

The Mack Model NR is nearly identical in game terms, featuring a 98-kW diesel engine, a 125-gallon fuel tank, a 10-ton cargo capacity, and a 19-ton loaded weight. Top speed was 35 mph.
