The Land Rover ½ ton Lightweight was an SUV that was specifically developed for the Royal Marines when the found that the existing Series IIA was too heavy to be airlifted by choppers. So Land Rover decided to reduce the length by 10 cm (so that it can stand over a pallet) and also make provision for several parts to be removed for re-fitment later.
The vehicle became so popular that nearly 2000 of them were produced and exported to various countries.
This particular vehicle with a canvas roof had this unique camouflage and was used for patrols in the West Berlin area when communism was at it’s peak and the Soviets yielded a large influence in Eastern Europe and East Germany (DDR).
