These are ex-U S Navy Deltas that we use here in McMurdo.  It is 40' long and articulated with a catepiller diesel engine. It carries 18 passengers in an un-heated box. The cab will hold a driver and two passengers.  The tires are almost six feet in diameter.  These were bulit in Canada in the 1970's & 1980's. We have three passenger Delta's here in McMurdo, Delta Dawn, Tina Marie and Gale.   There are also freight Delta's here.  The best part is I get to drive these monster trucks!  Watch out!
