Despite its totally different body, the Federal model 94x43 was operationally equivalent to the Autocar U-7144-T, even using many of the same major chassis components.
The first Federals, the 94x43A, being based upon commercial products of the time, had enclosed cabs. Later military models, the 94x43B and C, were redesigned to incorporate an open cab with canvas top. Some units were equipped with machine gun ring mounts for antiaircraft defense.
When used by the Signal Corps, the 94x43 was referred to as a K-32. In the Signal Corps use, the Federals pulled van trailers, while the transportation corps used them for general freight service. Federal built a total of 8,119 trucks of this type.
Late in the war, Kenworth and Marmon-Herrington were producers of these trucks.
