Initially requested by the U.S. Army Supply Corps, the Amphibian GP (also known as a Peep) was a multifaceted light vehicle capable of steady amphibious operation and fast land transport. The versatility made the Amphibian popular with troops in both the Western Front and Pacific Theater.

The GPA played an important role for the US in the Sicily landing in September, 1943. Ultimately, the GPA proved to be too slow, heavy and cumbersome on land and too small to be a good vessel in open water.
