My favorite military vehicle is the M6 High-Speed Tractor, so futuristic and massive. I will settle for an M4 HST too if need be, weighs a bit less.

An M6 from the Overloon War Museum in the Netherlands.

Recall seeing this in plastic model form when younger. Never saw one in real life size.

These are massive and were able to tow the biggest guns across heavy terrain.

Because this is about "Vehicles" rather than a single vehicle, this does make it easier.

The DUKW amphibious 2 and a half ton cargo truck.  I have ridden in them and being a former supply officer, anything that makes getting material ashore and off of the beach is a treasure.

The M4 Sherman tank in its various permutations.  The Israelis were using them up through 1973 with 105mm guns firing shaped charge ammunition.

The M3 Grant with its mix of armament.  I have always thought that the U.S. should have deployed M3s more in the Pacific for the combination of the 75mm HE round and the highly lethal 37mm canister round.

And I fully agree with the Churchill Crocodile.  They would have been great on Iwo Jima and Okinawa if they had been available.

And the Jeep, with its incredible versatility.
