At the beginning of the Sixties another conflict in Southeast Asia, which had already been simmering for a long period of time, flared up with new intensity with the direct participation of the two superpowers of the time, the Soviet Union and the U.S.A. The Vietnam War became a major testing ground for the M37 like most other examples of military equipment of the time. Just as with the previous conflict, the trucks were widely used in a great variety of roles, besides which many machines were modified in field conditions with additional armor, and the M37 was sometimes fitted with large caliber machine guns of various types. Series production of the M37 ended in 1968. During this time more than 115,000 units rolled off all the various production lines. Besides the U.S.A. and Canada, other significant operators were Israel and Greece.
