According to Major E.P. Hogan of the QMC, the “Howie-Wiley Belly-Flopper” was the only military produced predecessor of the 1/4-ton, 4×4, Truck.  The vehicle did not find favor with the Chief of Infantry who was seeking a replacement for the motorcycle and the horse in a light-weight reconnaissance and liaison car.
