No More LRs for Aus Defence Forces


Recommended Posts

Just saw actual confirmation today that all Land Rovers in the Aus military will be replaced by partly by MOG & Mack truck built vehicles, but mostly G Wagen vehicles (over 2000 in the initial order). Apparently MB will be providing G Wagens in a 6x6 variant built by Steyr Punch to replace the Perenties. First deliveries December 2009.

Probably old news and certainly not unexpected, but it's the first actual confirmation I've seen. At least it's good to see that Toyota didn't win the tender.

Better news is the number of 6x6 Perenties due to be dumped on the market soon.
