The M42 Duster was an anti-aircraft vehicle used in conjunction with tank units, equipped with a pair of 40mm cannons on an open-top turret, and powered by a 500hp engine that let it achieve speeds of up to 70km/h. It was accepted into service with the U.S. Army in 1953 and proved an effective anti- aircraft weapons system.
