Friend of mine bought a Defender 90, awesome vehicle. 2 weeks after getting it we drove off into the bush to find some shit! dropped into a creek, dropped in, there was no road, 3 foot drop; water was shallow so no biggie, how the hell are we going to get out of this... just pulled up to the other side put the front wheels on the on the bank and just ate at the sides for a bit. Got a good bit of stream bank gone and just punched it! We shot up like there was a freaking ramp there, oh wait we just created one!

We did off camber stuff that I would never have guest would be possible. It was our chase vehicle for the Baja 1000 for 2 years. Stuck, need gas in the middle of no where, gotcha covered!

Given that the SAS pretty much get to use what they want, them using Landies pretty much since their inception is pretty convinving praise:







I didn't realise that the US Army Rangers use landies too!

The SAS also like the U.S rifles m-16 m203 .Great book to read called Bravo two Zero .Written by Andy McNabb a sas trooper and his team that was caught behind Iraqi lines in the gulf war. Those look like smoke generators on the landies in the top picture on the front bumper.
