I read on a site of the us army sof that they used non-tactical vehicles in the early stage of Operation Iraqi Freedom.
One of these vehicles should have been the Landrover Defender.
Is this correct and if so, which version ?
The standard hardtop or the SAS Pink Panther version ?
Can someone give my an answer ?
One of the vehicles you may be referring to is the Ranger Special Operations Vehicle. Here’s a link to my Warwheels site vehicle index: WarWheels.Net- Land Rover Defender Ranger Special Operations Vehicle .
I don’t think it’s the RSOV. That vehicle was mentioned on that site under an different chapter.
The one i’m thinking of was mentioned under the chapter : non-standard tactical vehicles.
Just came across this…
and that :
“In addition to GMVs, the Special Forces soldiers of Task Force Viking travelled in Non-standard Tactical Vehicles (NTVs) such as Land Rover Defenders and other 4x4s”
