The early versions produced by AM General included the M915 and M915A1 models. Later Versions [sic] M915A3 to A5 versions were produced by the Freightliner companies. A total of 2,200 M915A1 models were purchased by the military. This particular M915A1 model was used by the 213th Area Support Group's (ASG) 131st Transportation Company.
