Historical Description Edit
The M50 Ontos, also known as 'The Thing,' was an impressive-looking armored vehicle that emerged in 1956 during the Vietnam War. Despite its design as a tank destroyer, the Ontos was mostly used as an anti-infantry unit due to the lack of tanks deployed by the North Vietnamese Army. It was equipped with six M40 recoilless rifles that could be fired in rapid succession to ensure that its target was destroyed. This | made the Ontos particularly useful at flushing out enemy | infantry from cover. Its lightweight design provided it with outstanding mobility and allowed it to travel in confined spaces where larger vehicles could not. It was also easily transported by aircraft and railcar.
Although the M50 Ontos was a powerful force on the battlefield, it had some notable deficiencies. It was lightly armored, which made it susceptible to hidden mines and rocket grenades. Additionally, its rifles had to be reloaded from the outside, exposing its crew to danger. The Ontos fleet was eventually deactivated and sent back to the U.S. in 1969.
