    2½ Ton 6x6 Trucks of WWII

    The Red Ball Express 1944

    After the breakout of Normandy in July 1944, an acute shortage of supplies on both fronts governed all operations.  Some 28 divisions were advancing across France and Belgium, each ordinarily requiring 700-750 tons a day.  Patton's 3rd Army was soon grinding to a halt from lack of fuel and ordnance.

    The key to pursuit was a continuous supply of fuel and ordnance, thus leading to the Red Ball Express.

    I do wonder what a German Panzer commander would give for this supply of fuel being unloaded in Belgium 1944? Shocked
