The M4/M4A1 Mortar Carriers were based on the M2 Half-track car. The hull was modified by the addition of a rear door. The mortar was mounted on a fixed baseplate to fire over the rear of the vehicle.
Limitations of the M4 in action had showed that the mortar needed to be able to fire from the vehicle in all situations. Accordingly the M4A1 was fitted with a new traverse feature, allowing a much gteater arc of fire.
600 were built between May and October 1943.
