Army Transportation Experimental Vehicles

Be amazed at the United States' Army Experimental Vehicles you thought only existed in Sci-Fi films.

The unique needs of military transportation have driven the development of many of the vehicles and system that we still use today. From our early adoption of new technologies like the airplane and helicopter, to the support of the concept like the creation of a U.S. interstate road system or containerized cargo, the U.S. Army is a leader in technological development. The U.S. Army Transportation Museum holds the finest examples of the Army’s experimental vehicles. From space-aged flying cars and jets packs to more practical experiments such as determining if and how helicopter could operate in the Antarctic the museum holds many of these one of a kind historic vehicles.
