From DUKW to DUCK. A Brief History:
Did you know The designation of DUKW is not a military pun – the name comes from the terminology used for military vehicles in World War II; the D indicates a vehicle designed in 1942, the U meant “utility (amphibious)”, the K indicated all-wheel drive and the W indicated two powered rear axles.
Although technically a misnomer, DUKWs are often referred to as duck boats. Another popular nickname was old magoo or simply magoo. Though the origin of this term is unknown, it probably refers to the odd shape of the vehicle.
DUKWs became known as ”Ducks” and are still in use, as well as purpose-built amphibious tour buses, primarily as tourist transport in harbor and river cities.
