Re: Military trailer specifications
Canada uses a different system, they have 2 weights, on and off road. Offroad is 1/2 of on road (I spent 15 years in the canadian Infantry). For example the 2.5 ton truck had a load of 5 tons on road and 2 1/2 tons offroad. The confusion is newer vehicles use metric tons (1000kg/2200 lbs and not 2000 lbs).
Here is what I found
Canadian M101CDN2, 1/4 ton trailer
Updated "Jeep Trailer" by the Canadian Forces. Also in the lineage of 1/4 ton trailers are its' predessors the BT3 & MBT (WW2), M100 (Korean War era) and the Bantam civilian T3C & Spen trailer (both post WW2 into early 1950's). Some countries also made similar trailers after WW2. Newer contemporary civilian clones are available.
