All six wheels of the Gama Goat are driven, the trailer via an articulated driveshaft. The M792 utilises 4 wheel steering making it extremely maneuverable, but tricky to drive for those unfamiliar with the M792's handling characteristics. This vehicle is amphibious with the wheels providing the drive in water.

Here's a Youtube video of a Gama Goat doing a hillclimb in a sand pit. This Gama Goat video is even better. Watch early in the video how the driver motors along a side slope until the M792 flips onto its side. He puts his arm out as it almost rolls over, then rolls back on it's side. With no rollover protection that was a near fatality.
