T32 Mountain Infantry Gun

The US 10th Mountain Division was a unique formation in the US Army and had some equipment that other divisions didn’t field. One of these was the T32 Mountain Infantry Gun. This light 37mm gun could be broken down and carried in a light vehicle or on the back of a pack mule. In combat the T32 gun was mounted on a tripod similar to a .50 cal machine-gun tripod.
