During the (ahem) "Great Debate" on this subject, someone came up with fairly authoritive evidence that the tripods were in fact not only manufactured, but issued. It appears, however, that mostly they stayed on the company truck.

They seem to have been used in long-term fixed positions some though, and they were certainly used in the AA mount during the first three or four years of the war especially.

tsk tsk, platoon truck! Not everyone had those great big honking 2-1/2 ton GMCs....

But your memory for the rest of the details is amazingly ... amazing.

That would be a novel experience. I'm not sure I've ever done a Google search before; I always use Sherlock. Couldn't I just entertain the ladies instead? I'm very good at that, not to brag.

:D
