The Hummvee is big, wide, and more of a small truck than a Jeep. The larger vehicles came years after my Army days ended. In my Army, we had a vehicle that was officially the "Ford Mutt". We all called it a Jeep. Aside from being more unstable and having a front grill that ran sideways instead of up and down, it was not all that different from a real Jeep. And believe me, these little things did a lot. They were fast, ran on rough terrain, and could haul quite a load. The old company radio took up half the back of Jeeps. You could put in a mount so that the man in the back seat could stand up and fire a machine gun. And no, that Rat Patrol stuff was pure fantasy. Reality was not that cool.
A 106mm Recoilless rifle took up the whole back, and then some. It had a lot of firepower. A crew could fire and then run out of there fast in a Jeep. The little vehicles were an essential for Army life from World War II through most of the 1980s.
The Tim Mee Jeep was a staple of playtime back in the 1950s and 1960s. It had a metal axle and black tires. The little toy was quite sturdy, too. They were often packed in a bag of toy soldiers. Usually, there were a few stickers included that had markings for the little Jeep.
The little gun goes well with the Jeep in the Combat Patrol set. The set also includes instructions for placing the enclosed stickers. The photo on the header card shows a Jeep flying in the air with a 37, antitank gun in tow. However, the field gun in the set is definitely more traditional artillery. To me, that is even more fun.
