This section contains pages on two carriers which at first sight might not have much in common with the T16. But, both the Armoured Snowmobile and Oxford Carrier used an American drive train. More specifically, it was half of the drive train found in the the M5A1 and M24 Light Tanks, consisting of a Cadillac V8 engine coupled to a 4-speed Hydramatic transmission (of which the M5A1 and M24 had two each). Power to the tracks was transferred through a T16 carrier axle, in fact!
