Throughout its history Land Rovers and the armed forces have been closely linked. The rugged go anywhere capabilities of the 4x4 combined with its ability to adapt has made it a popular choice with UK armed forces and those of other nations. The British Army trialled a fleet of Series 1â€™s back in 1949, and the rest is history. Each generation of the vehicle has seen service with either the Army, Royal Navy, or RAF. Todayâ€™s military Land Rover closely resembles the Defender and is available in short and long wheel bases, like the Defender 90 and 110.
