The early production standardized versions of the MB/GPW did not have a provision for trailer wires, yet they all came with the pintle hook. I assume this was a carryover feature from the "prototypes". The trailer socket and wires were added during later contracts. While reading Warbaby it occurred to me, even though there were deadlines to meet, that an awful lot of planning went into these vehicles, so I doubt that the omission of these wires was accidental, or even to save weight; and, all of the "prototypes" also had pintle hooks. What could the reason have been to not include trailer wires until so late in production?
