Does anyone know if the French Army (in Vietnam) or the South Vietnamese Army used the WW2 era 250 gallon wheeled water trailer and if so, how were they marked? Iíve been doing my due diligence and have searched all of hells half-acre and canít come up with anything. Google has provided tons of pictures of restored trailers and a bevy of tech-manual images but not much else. Any help is welcome. Thanks.

Maybe. This looks like the same tank, but the trailer is different with squared-off fenders over the wheels.

Thanks Gino!
Unfortunately, that's the more modern version. I'm looking for info on the WW2 water buffalo on the Ben Hur trailer. Much thanks for the pic though!
