GS Land Rover Replacement?

JLR dealer in Norwich last summer, Last year production SWB Defender 40 grand.
Could buy 2 decent pickups for that.

I've worked with countries in the middle east, the land rovers never went any further than the Hiluxs went, and more often than not the hiluxs got further without recovery.

And you're not driving around in a cramped tub which everything rattles at different speeds .
 
Someone down under will confer, Aussie 6x6 and 4x4 LR troop carriers. Were they not widened and fitted with Japanese diesels, by a specialist company.
Google Perentie on here, lots of mentions on differing LR threads
 
Please please stop thinking that Land Rover in its new guise or whatever will be seen with military drivers dropping off range stew.....it wont. It may be seen having been hired for a visit by some 3 Star rank visitor but the days of Land Rovers/Defenders being held in Ashchurch is over.

Oh I agree, JLR have no intention of doing Milspec 4x4s any more, I'm just being optimistic that hopefully Jim Ratcliffe and his Ineos Automotive will come up trumps.
I still feel, doing a recycling job on the current load of LRs that are in use or in storage, going that direction could get... what... another 10 years use. Using that time to really evaluate a long term replacement.

You do not need a long term replacement. As i have said before, when you go on exercise use the vehicles you actually use on operations....which wont be softskin Land Rover type vehicles. For peacetime getting to the ranges in buses and white 4x4's leased as its cheaper. Whilst it looks more warry driving in green Land Rovers it costs money to buy them and maintain them. We do not have the money we had in the 70's, 80's and 90's to have a MT garage/park full of Land Rovers. Even Wolf Rovers were crap, they were just screwed together a little tighter compared to 110's. Eventually the drivers window would work its way to its usual rattle self and the wipers would spread the water around the windscreen.
