FV426 ORANGE WILLIAM

#1
Would anyone have photos or drawings of the FV426, Carrier, Tracked, Launcher designed to launch the Orange William missile system but I don't think it ever reached production stage. I'd be very grateful for any help as I have an illustration project to do regarding this vehicle and so far I've found nothing on the WWW.
Many thanks.

I don’t think it was ever built. Thus no photos.

It was certainly designated but didn’t go into development.

The military didn’t know what they wanted for OW. Firstly they looked at mounting it on a Centurion. Then a chopped down Comet. Then the FV426. Then a Land Rover. Then they gave up.

You are probably out of luck.

If you get any joy on the other site you posted this query on then let us know.

It would appear others have tried and failed.

“Over the years I have been unable to ever find drawings of the tracked OW launcher FV426.”

Interesting to meet up with fellow failed attempt! Lol. The information that you gave me is very useful indeed, believe it or not, and I'm grateful. I guess it's now down to me to illustrate a 'best guess' based upon the official spec.

Thanks again for the help. I will let you know if I strike gold.

Rgds, Derek
