Pintle hitches on tanks and APCs

I see pintle hitches on vehicles (and variants) such as an M1, M113, M2, M60, etc (I am not including vehicles such as the M548 and M1015 because I know they did haul trailers). However, I have not seen many pictures of such armored vehicles towing trailers. I believe I have seen videos of M113s towing M105s or M149s in Germany while in a convoy. Were trailers often towed with such vehicles? Does anyone have pictures? Thank you.

Israelis use pintle hitches on their tanks to tow mobile bridges to cross obstacles, among other things.

In Desert Storm a few tanks towed MICLIC mine-clearing trailers, the MICLIC system was pretty new at the time.
