Canon Antiaérien Automoteur M16

M16 Multiple Gun Motor Carriage is a variant of the M3 Half-Track mounting quad Mitrailleuse .50 cal. Browning M2 HB anti-aircraft machine-guns. The M45 Quadmount with four Browning M2 machine-guns had a theoretical rate of fire of 2400 round per minute which proved very effective in anti-aircraft use. Having been superceded by the M42 «Duster» in 1953, the M16 Multiple Gun Motor Carriage was withdrawn from US Army service in 1958, although it continued to service in other armed forces until the 1970s.
