Priest-Kangaroo-Conselice (armoured personnel carrier). The first Kangaroos were converted from M7 Priest self-propelled guns at a field workshop (codenamed Kangaroo, hence the name). They were stripped of their 105mm guns, the front aperture welded over, then sent into service carrying twelve troops. They were first used on 8 August 1944 during Operation Totalize south of Caen to supplement the half-tracks available.
