    The Willys MB formally called by the U.S. Army Truck, 1⁄4-ton, 4×4, Command Reconnaissance, commonly known as the Willys Jeep, Jeep, or jeep, were highly successful American off-road capable light military utility vehicles built in large numbers to a standardized design for the United States and other Allied forces in World War II from 1941 to 1945. The jeep became the primary light wheeled transport vehicle of the United States military and its allies, with President Eisenhower once calling it "one of three decisive weapons the U.S. had during WWII." It was the world's first mass-produced four-wheel drive car, manufactured in six-figure numbers; about 650,000 units were built, constituting a quarter of the total U.S. non-combat motor vehicles produced during the war. Sometimes these vehicles were mounted with different kind of weapons and one of them was the WASP. The WASP was a flamethrower introduced by September 1942 and had two fuel tanks located inside the Jeep and used a large projector gun that was mounted over the top of the vehicle. It had a range of 73-91m and was a weapon used mostly during the invasion of Normandy.
