This is is an original World War II Outift, Cooking, Small Detachment STOVE. Stamped CHRYSLER AIRTEMP 1945. It has never been used!!!! It was developed to serve isolated units from 15 to 40 men, depending upon the type of rations served. It is compact and light, and can bee easily be carried by motor transport or backpack (each of the two sections forms one backboard load). The burner has been selected for its simplicity of contruction, operation , and maintenance. It will burn leaded or unleaded gasoline, kerosene, or light diesel oil. It uses about one-third of a gallon an hour, and should burn SMOKE-FREE. The fuel is gravity fed from a five-gallon gas can (not included). It is compact and everything fits inside it. It includes a copy of Technical Bulletin (TB) 10-400-2, entitled OUTFIT, COOKING, SMALL DETACHMENT, dated 194 5. It appears to be complete. All the other components appear to be included. Comes complete with original wood packing crate. The paper was sealed up until I took this pics for the listing. THIS IS A GREAT FIND. If you do cooking during living history encampments, this is a lot smaller and lighter than a M-1937 Field Stove!!! The crate says 150lbs. Otherwise its local pic up only.
