Hi Sturm:

As far as I can tell, the first truck is indeed a White/Indiana. The early 4 ton 6X6 trucks are hard to tell apart sometimes as they used a lot of the same cab and motor hood assemblies and differed mostly in the motor and transmissions supplied. White/Indiana made them, also Autocar, Marmon-Herrington and I think Corbitt also.

The second vehicle I believe is an early GMC ACKW 2 1/2 ton 6X6 of 1939-1940 or so.

Here is a photo of an Ex-French Contract example that was later supplied to Russia and the UK.

Hi Sturm:

Your last photo is a Mack NM 6, the early version with enclosed drivers cab. Later they were all open cab as you can see in the photo here.

According to the information of this link http://www.olive-drab.com/idphoto/id_photos_mack_nm.php I think Mack NM-1 or NM-2

Hi Sturm:

Sorry, I was a bit lazy. I should have indicated the correct number instead of an early version of the NM 6.
