Albion » WD.CX23
The WD.CX23 was a 6x4 general service truck, basically the overtype version of the WD.CX24 tank transporter model, and was designed for payloads of 10 tons. Introduced in 1941, a year before the WD.CX24, it had vacuum assisted brakes rather than full air brakes, and an EN244 oil engine rather than the larger petrol unit, this being preffered for an artillery vehicle. The EN244 was basically the same as the EN242 bus engine except that it had no belt driven auxiliaries. Several hundred were made during the war years.
