Land Rover and the armed forces have a long and closely linked history. There's no wonder why the rugged go-anywhere capabilities of Land Rover and their adaptable, versatile nature, appeal to the UK armed forces and forces from all over the world.
The first relationship between Land Rover and the military started back in 1949, when the British Army trialled a fleet of Series 1 vehicles. The rest, as they say, is history. Each generation of the Land Rover Series has seen service either in the Army, Royal Navy, or RAF.
Military Land Rover Accessories and Parts
Ex-military Land Rovers are popular vehicle choices, mostly due to the fact that they are tough, no-frills workhorses. They're also very popular at shows and are favoured by many enthusiasts for their collectable nature.
Newer military Land Rovers include the Land Rover Wolf, which features a heavy-duty suspension and modified chassis to withstand heavy weapons loads, as well as equipment and personnel. The Land Rover Wolf also benefits from modified upgraded brakes and a 24V electrical system as standard. The latter keeps all electrical elements in line with MoD policies for an efficient and simplified store chain. Used as a light utility vehicle it is commonly used for transporting troops and patrolling on all terrains from urban streets to jungles and deserts.
This range of military Land Rover is officially classed as Higher Specification (HS), and there are 23 variants. Each is designed to perform a particular role within the military, ranging from helicopter support to reconnaissance.
