Chemical Warfare Jeep (Gas)

Hard to categorize, but it's a mod to make tear gas. I suppose you could do this with diesel fuel and make a smoke screen too if the pipe was hot enough.

"Geiger Field, Washington. Officers and men are taught to be on the alert for a gas attack at any time. This jeep appears at unexpected places and sends out a charge of tear gas from the ingenious device attached to the muffler. Those in the vicinity, to protect themselves from the irritating gas, must be able to don their masks instantaneously" 1942? (date not exact)
