Land-Rover S2A - SAS version


Close-up of equipment stowage
Close-up of sparse dash


Description

An excellent example of the 'Pink Panther' style Land Rover as used by the SAS for desert reconnaissance and special operations. The superstructure has been pared to the bone, then covered in equipment!

The close-ups show the sort of kit carried, including a pair of GPMG's on pintel mounts, an 84mm 'Carl Gustav' anti-armour rocket launcher, plus ammunition, radio sets and personal webing and kit. The view of the dashboard also shows the rifle stowage bins mounted on the front wings of the vehicle.

Location
