Military Buggies and Light Vehicles
When I make my off-road buggy it will be for fun and I will only use it for a few hours a week. Some people's lives depend on their off road transport and they at times will use it 24 hours a day to eat, sleep and fight. Members of the armed forces (mainly the Army but also the Royal Marines and RAF Regiment) use a variety of military buggies and light vehicles including those based on the Land Rover like the Tomcat.
I am going to have to do some more research before I can add words and descriptions for the military vehicles below, so for now enjoy the photographs of the Army vehicles.
Light Strike Vehicle (LSV)
This military buggy is the Light Strike Vehicle (LSV) used by the British Army. It is an off road vehicle based on a steel space frame covered in a mixture of fibre glass (glass reinforced plastic) and aluminium chequer plate panels.
Weapons Mounted Installation Kit (WMIK)
The Weapons Mounted Installation Kit (WMIK) was developed by Ricardo and is fitted to a Landrover (Truck Utility Medium High Specification Land Rover in Army speak). Landrover call it a Rapid Deployment Vehicle.
